Building and Sustaining a Collaborative 


State Perinatal Quality Collaboratives (PQCs) are networks of perinatal care providers and public health professionals, working to improve pregnancy outcomes for women and newborns by advancing evidence-based clinical practices and processes.

CDC funds state-wide PQCs in California, New York, and Ohio and is working with these networks to sponsor a series of Webinars. These Webinars are intended to help PQCs share knowledge and experiences, and to teach other states how to start, maintain, and grow their own collaboratives. Webinars will be held every two months. They are available to participants in all states, with a focus on hospitals, physician organizations, and health agencies.

This Webcast will present a discussion of how to build and sustain a perinatal quality collaborative, including establishing an expert workgroup, communication strategies, and past experience and challenges with funding PQC efforts. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions about how the collaboratives in the presenters’ states have applied these principles to their projects.  


At the end of this program, participants will be able to—

• Discuss how some states have developed leadership and collaboration among stakeholders.
• Understand successful communication strategies to build collaborative participation.
• Identify resources for support of collaborative activities
