The AHA invites rural hospitals and health systems to participate in the Better Maternal Outcomes Rapid Improvement Network — a free, six-month program focused on maternal outcomes and respectful care. Sponsored by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, the network will assist participants in implementing promising practices and improve care delivery for all women and newborns. Participating organizations will learn how to spread best practices and protocols through a variety of shared learning formats. The next session begins in April; interested hospitals can learn more at ihi.org/maternalhealth. The AHA is partnering with IHI as part of the association's Better Health for Mothers and Babies initiative. "The AHA is pursuing the goal of eliminating maternal mortality and reducing severe morbidity," said Robyn Begley, R.N., CEO of the American Organization for Nursing Leadership and senior vice president and chief nursing officer of the AHA.
