New Preeclampsia Toolkit for Healthcare Providers Coming in May

Created on Friday, 05 April 2013 15:46

The Preeclampsia Foundation is an active member of the Preeclampsia Task Force under the auspices of California Maternal Quality Care Collaborative (CMQCC). Here are several items of interest from CMQCC's most recent report.

Maternal Mortality Review (CA-PAMR):

CMQCC continues to work with CDPH/MCAH to review maternal deaths in California and use our findings to inform maternal quality improvement efforts. To date, we have completed review of maternal deaths from 2002 to 2006.  The CA-PAMR project team has been working on manuscripts to submit to scientific journals on the CA-PAMR methodology, the top five causes of maternal death, and preeclampsia.

Preeclampsia Toolkit: We are finishing the final edits on the CDPH/MCAH-CMQCC Toolkit entitled, "Improving Health Care Response to Preeclampsia" and plan to have it available for release later in May. The toolkit provides a compendium of 18 best practice guidelines and various tools and algorithms gleaned from the "lessons learned" from the CA-PAMR review. The toolkit algorithms are straightforward, focus on the critical actions and are flexible for use by a wide variety of practitioners and practice settings.

Preeclampsia Collaborative: The CMQCC Preeclampsia Collaborative launched in January 2013 with a webinar introduction followed by a very productive and successful Learning Session on February 5 in Oakland. The 25 participating hospitals are evenly distributed in both northern and southern California, representing 82,000 births in 2011 (1:6). The aims of the Collaborative are to: 1) Reduce the rate of severe morbidities in women with hypertension and 2) Reduce the percentage of women (with hypertension) who have prolonged length of stays.
