The United States ranks 61st in the world for maternal mortality, and African American/Black women are three times more likely to die due to poor maternal health, while Native American women are two times more likely than White women to die. Pregnancy-related mortality is 2.4 times higher than it was in 1987, however, approximately 65% of maternal deaths are preventable. Action steps to mitigate the maternal health crisis include recognizing structural racism and unconscious/implicit bias as factors in disparate care, and focusing on deliberate change in clinician behavior and best practices.
This CME Outfitters podcast will focus on helping clinicians identify factors that contribute to racial disparities in maternal health outcomes and then outline steps for implementing effective and timely clinical interventions to eliminate preventable maternal morbidity and mortality.
