About the event

Experts agree that America is facing a maternal and infant health crisis. According to the CDC, American women are more likely to die from causes related to childbirth or pregnancy than in any other developed nation, about half of those deaths are considered preventable. This two-day Symposium will provide evidence-based information about clinical and social issues impacting maternal morbidity and mortality. Day I includes an overview of current data and trends defining the current crisis and the impact of racial inequity and implicit bias on maternal outcomes. It is followed by management of hypertension in women across the health care continuum from pre-conception through discharge after childbirth. Day II topics will include the the impact of Perinatal Mood Disorders on maternal outcomes and most current findings related to 4th Trimester Care. Closing remarks will focus on the critical importance of self-care as a tool to improve health outcomes for both professionals and the women in their care.

Objectives Discuss current data and factors that contribute to trends in maternal morbidity and mortality. Explain best practices related to the care of the woman with hypertension from pre-conception to discharge after childbirth. Recognize common mood disorders associated with pregnancy and evidence-based interventions known to prevent negative maternal outcomes. Identify critical recommendations made by the “Fourth Trimester Project” and the importance of considering the inherent biological, physical, and social changes experienced by millions of women after childbirth. Explore the relationship between health care professional self-care and successful maternal outcomes.
