<b>Doing Better Together</b> to Equitably & Innovatively Advance Reproductive Health and Healthcare with a Focus on Human Rights, Quality Improvement, and Interprofessional Collaboration


MAHEC has convened a learning collaborative with the vision to support a Statewide Provider Support Network (SPSN) leveraging the expertise of champions to strengthen the quality of care for people in the pregnant, postpartum and interconception periods. The learning collaborative's goal is to increase awareness and engage interprofessional collaboration in the provision of maternal health/well-woman care. The learning collaborative is primarily comprised of Family Medicine, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Pediatric, and Nursing professionals 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 amongst 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.
