2021 NPQIC Fall Summit

2021 NPQIC Fall Summit

Friday, November 5  •  8 am - 12 pm  •  via Zoom

The opportunity to reduce perinatal mortality and morbidity exists in Nebraska. However, the systems in place are not always effective. There are times when obstetric care does not ensure pregnant women receive the risk-appropriate care that is specific to their health needs. Newborns with hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy or those at risk for sepsis are not always recognized which leads to inadequate or inappropriate treatment. Gaps in screening for perinatal depression still exist. When this goes undiagnosed, it predisposes women and their families to long-lasting adverse effects. Perinatal stakeholders from across the state will meet virtually to learn how to implement evidence-based practices and improve perinatal outcomes.
