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.
The AKPQC held an AIM Introductory Webinar on March 19. This webinar provided an overview of the AIM Program, details of the AIM-supported hypertension safety bundle, and data reporting requirements for AIM-participating facilities. The links to the slides and the recording of this webinar are below.
For questions or to enroll your facility in AIM, please contact Katy Krings at call 907-269-3418.
The AKPQC Steering Committee meets the second Thursday of every month from 12 pm to 1 pm. All are welcome to attend these meetings. Contact Katy Krings for the agenda or for information about how to join.
