This 60 minute panel will introduce participants to the recently-formed National Partnership for Maternal Safety (NPMS), a multidisciplinary group with representatives from stakeholders in maternal health including the ASA, SOAP, ACOG, the Society for Maternal Fetal Medicine, the CDC and the Joint Commission. Its mission is to improve maternal safety through multidisciplinary collaboration and culture change. Dr. Grobman, a nationally-recognized obstetrician and maternal fetal medicine specialist in Chicago will introduce the rationale for the formation of the NPMS: preventable morbidity and mortality. Dr. Smiley, who sat on the working group that wrote the NPMS patient safety bundle addressing thromboembolic disease, will present that bundle, and include risks and benefits of neuraxial anesthetic procedures in patients on pharmacologic anticoagulants. Dr. Scavone will present the NPMS patient safety bundle on severe hypertensive disease, emphasizing the anesthesiologist’s role.
Conference Objectives are :
• Identify root causes of preventable maternal morbidity and mortality;
• Apply the National Partnership for Maternal Safety patient safety bundles to the peripartum care of patients with hypertensive disease;
• Apply the National Partnership for Maternal Safety patient safety bundles to the peripartum care of patients at risk for thromboembolism;
