WHY is PQI offering the #POSTBIRTH Action Community?

Since the NPR story on educating new moms regarding #POSTBIRTH warning signs aired on August 17th, we have had over 300 clinicians express interest in joining an Action Community focused on improving #POSTBIRTH education. Every day we get more requests. We want to help everyone. But, there are not enough hours in the day to be able to work individually with everyone who has contacted us. That is why we are offering the #POSTBIRTH Action Community that includes three group coaching sessions. Based on Dr. Suplee and Dr. Bingham's experience leading state and national multi-hospital quality improvement collaboratives, the group sessions are very beneficial since they offer both expert and peer mentoring.

Coaches help individuals and groups achieve more than they would on their own. That is why people hire career coaches and personal trainers. Joining the #POSTBIRTH Action Community gives you the ability to obtain expert and peer guidance and insights as you work to improve #POSTBIRTH Discharge Education in your practice or your facility over a 5 month period.

WHO should join the #POSTBIRTH Action Community?

Leaders of hospital systems, public health programs, or individuals are all welcome to join the community. But register now - space is limited.

What are the OBJECTIVES?
1. Outline the signs & symptoms of the leading causes of #POSTBIRTH maternal morbidity and mortality.
2. Describe and support the implementation of a program that is designed to improve #POSTBIRTH education program about potential warning signs education.
3. Discuss improvement science methods and tools.

What are the BENEFITS of joining?

  • Reduce implementation time (which saves staff time and money) by attending three expert coaching and mentoring sessions with Dr. Bingham and Dr. Suplee.
  • Discuss ways to reduce #POSTBIRTH maternal morbidity and mortality among your patients. 
  • Learn the latest tools and implementation tips to enhance your implementation effectiveness.
  • Obtain education for you and other members of your organization about the leading causes of #POSTBIRTH maternal morbidity and mortality.
  • Collaborate and learn from peers during the three conference calls and via participation in the #POSTBIRTH Action Community Group that is being formed on PQI's website. This group will allow the individual members to communicate with each other in a "closed" forum, outside of the three scheduled teleconferences.


Dr. Patricia Suplee and Dr. Debra Bingham were the co-principal investigators for the "Empowering Women to Obtain Needed Care" pilot program. A description of their work is published in the Journal of Obstetric, Gynecologic & Neonatal Nursing; for Women's Health; and the American Journal of Maternal Child Health Nursing.
