<b>Doing Better Together</b> to Equitably Advance Reproductive Health and Wellness Webinar Series with a Focus on Innovation, Quality Improvement, and Interprofessional Collaboration


MAHEC has convened a Learning Collaborative to assist a Statewide Provider Support Network (SPSN) in leveraging the expertise of Primary Care champions to strengthen the quality of care for people in the pregnant, postpartum and inter-conception periods. The learning collaborative’s goal is to increase awareness and engage inter-professional collaboration in the provision of maternal health/well-woman care. The learning collaborative is primarily comprised of Family Medicine, Obstetrics & Gynecology, and Pediatric clinicians as well as related providers from across the 6 perinatal care regions in North Carolina. To operationalize our efforts for sharing best practices and improving communication between obstetrical and primary care providers we are offering a series of continuing education opportunities as well as technical assistance to bridge the gap between theory and practice to advance family and community health.
