Obstetric Quality Improvement Initiatives 


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.
