Addressing Quality in Childbearing Care - Webcast (Without CME Credits)

  • Duration: 60 Mins
  • Credits:
  • Handout: No

This is a fully interactive, structured meeting following the internationally acclaimed Future Search process for transdisciplinary dialogue when addressing "wicked problems". The Future Search model for co-creation requires narrowing the focus on the goals of the meeting when identifying stakeholder groups, and when nominating delegates. In this case the goals are to "address our shared responsibility to equity, safety, and respect". The Planning team nominated delegates from 12 stakeholder perspectives: consumers, community health, service providers, consumer advocates, innovative models of care, national health systems, human rights/law, professional/regulatory associations, payment reform, health professional educators, health systems administration, and quality and safety improvement, as well as key partners to effect implementation: including funders, legislators, and researchers. Confirmed delegates include leaders from the major maternity care organizations; community health leaders; innovative practice models from around the country; researchers, legislators, public health, hospital administration as well as consumers and educators – in short decision makers and service users across the "whole system".

We are offering this exciting opportunity to join the delegates on Monday, April 1, as they learn from their colleagues about the realities of the lived experience of care, new findings from person-centered research, policy implications, and models for service delivery that are transforming quality of care across the country….

Learning Objectives:

1. List discrepancies in experiences of high quality care and respectful treatment by care providers, based on race and socio-economic status in the United States.

5. Describe where and how equity, safety and respect during the perinatal period are grounded in human rights and U.S. law and policy.

6. List at least three different ways that inequity and disrespect manifest in the current maternity care system.

7. Describe the impact of community-based doulas and midwives on outcomes of care for women of color in the United States.
