Helping perinatal health professionals expand their use of improvement science to eliminate preventable perinatal injuries and deaths. 


The PQI Blog and PQI Tools contains more information about our efforts to encourage clinicians to #SpeakUp for African American and Black Mothers. You can also download, use, and share the #SpeakUp handout.


Changing conversations about racial and ethnic perinatal disparities and the unacceptable rates of perinatal morbidity and mortality is only the first step in ending preventable perinatal morbidity and mortality.

PQI has developed more solutions to help QI leaders mitigate four common challenges they may encounter.

Challenge 1: Collaborating with other perinatal Quality Improvement (QI) leaders
The Perinatal QI Project Maps are a NEW and INNOVATIVE way for QI leaders throughout the world to communicate and collaborate with each other. Be one of the first perinatal QI Leaders to put a project (or two) on the Institute for Perinatal Quality Improvement (PQI) QI Project Maps.

Individual Health Professionals (RNs, MDs, Midwives, and other Health Professionals) and Premium Facility subscribers have full search capability, plus additional benefits. Basic Subscribers (FREE) have limited search capabilities.

Challenge 2: Keeping staff engaged in QI Projects                   The PQI Action Briefs are designed to help keep staff engaged, save time, and help identify perinatal quality and safety blind spots in facilities where women give birth. Each Action Brief includes a Case Study (in a Power Point slide set that can be customized), discussion notes for the facilitator and an Action Template.

Sign-Up as an Individual Health Professional or as a Premium Facility subscriber to receive two Action Briefs per year (one maternal and one neonatal) and receive an invitation to attend the Action Brief webinars and links to the recorded webinars.

Challenge 3: Keeping up-to-date on QI methods that really work
Sign-up as an Individual Health Professional, Premium Facility or Basic (Free) subscriber to receive PQI Updates. Check out our blog posts and subscribe to the PQI Blog
