2023 Nebraska Perinatal Quality Improvement Collaborative (NPQIC) Fall Summit

2023 Nebraska Perinatal Quality Improvement Collaborative (NPQIC) Fall Summit

This summit provides evidence-based knowledge and expertise to providers and nurses caring for mothers and newborns. The 2023 NPQIC Fall Summit will provide a foundational understanding of the current black maternal health crisis and the landscape of black maternal health in Nebraska. Sessions will equip health care teams with the most up-to-date practices around severe maternal morbidities, trauma-informed care, and chronic conditions and substance use in pregnancy. Providing evidence-based and equitable care to marginalized populations is critical for improving pregnancy health outcomes in Nebraska.

Summit Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, the participants should be better able to:

  1. Discuss updates from the Nebraska Perinatal Quality Improvement Collaborative involving evidence-based and equitable approaches to improving maternal opioid use and chronic health conditions for mothers and their newborns.
  2. Explain the roles and responsibilities of the health care team when providing culturally appropriate maternal care as well as those with varying degrees of trauma in their lives.
  3. Describe opportunities to reduce maternal morbidity through transformative changes within the community.
