Invitation to participate in first-birth C-sections reduction initiative

The AHA invites hospitals and health systems to participate in the Better Maternal Outcomes Improvement Sprint, a free, six-week program focused on the safe reduction of primary cesarean births, also known as NTSV cesarean births.

The sprint, which begins March 30 and is sponsored by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, centers on key change ideas, getting a program started, building goodwill, meaningful measurement and improving equity. Interested hospitals can learn more during a March 9 phone call at 1 p.m. ET. Learn more here.

The AHA is partnering with IHI as part of the association’s Better Health for Mothers and Babies Initiative.
