This webinar is the final installment in a rural maternal health webinar series hosted jointly by the Health Resources and Services Administration's (HRSA) Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP) and the Rural Health Information Hub. Building on topics and resources previously covered in the series, including achieving the Birthing-Friendly Hospital Designation from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), working with Perinatal Quality Collaboratives (PQCs), implementing patient safety bundles, and obstetric readiness for rural facilities without birthing units, this webinar will highlight various maternal health initiatives within HRSA. Experts will discuss HRSA Enhancing Maternal Care Initiative, the National Governors Association (NGA) rural maternal health collaborative, and a FORHP project that explored rural opportunities for maternal health quality.
