Thank you to everyone who helped make the January 25th AKPQC Kick-off a great success! Based on statewide severe mortality and morbidity data and your feedback from the launch survey and kick-off event, the AKPQC Steering Committee chose maternal hypertension as an initial priority focus area. We will be utilizing a framework and resources supported by the Alliance for Innovation on Maternal Health (AIM) Program.
Over the course of the next several months, we will be reaching out to hospitals and birthing facilities to enroll in AIM and begin this collaborative quality improvement work. In the meantime, an introductory webinar to AIM and the maternal hypertension safety bundle is scheduled for March 19th 12pm-1pm. This webinar will provide an overview of AIM for facilities or providers who were unable to participate in the kick-off meeting in January, and additionally will go into greater detail regarding what will be required of facilities that choose to participate.
