The Partnership for Patients national program for improving patient safety is one of the first times we’ve seen maternity care on the national agenda, with reducing obstetrical adverse events highlighted as one of ten national priority patient safety areas. Together with the National Priorities Partnership, the Partnership for Patients will offer a free webinar on September 28 about patient safety in maternity care. The webinar will address strategies to meet the national goal of eliminating 30% of preventable obstetrical adverse events and will feature Childbirth Connection’s Maureen Corry.
