OB Hemorrhage Collaborative #2:2011

OB Hemorrhage Collaborative

Obstetric Hemorrhage #2 will be starting in January 2011 and continue through December 2011.

The OB Hemorrhage Collaborative aims to improve readiness, recognition, response, and reporting of obstetric (OB) hemorrhage by establishing policies and procedures that implement organized, practiced protocols and
guide multi-disciplinary training for cooperative, timely response.

The primary aim of this collaborative is to improve California hospital capabilities and resources for responding to obstetric hemorrhage by increasing the use of protocols and drills and by improving availability of and training in standard and state-of-the-art medical, surgical and blood replacement options. Obstetric (OB) hemorrhage is a leading cause of pregnancy-related morbidity and mortality but has major opportunities for improved outcomes. CMQCC’s Hemorrhage Task Force (HTF) developed Obstetric Hemorrhage Tools and a Compendium of Best Practices to educate and train obstetric teams to improve processes of care and outcomes surrounding maternal hemorrhage. The collaborative will provide the means for making and measuring improvements in obstetrics hemorrhage care in California hospitals.
