NICHD/ORWH Pregnancy and Maternal Conditions That Increase Risk of Morbidity and Mortality Workshop
Date and Time–
6710B Rockledge Drive, Rooms 1425/1427, Bethesda, MD
In response to increasing U.S. maternal mortality rates, workshop participants will develop a research agenda targeted at the clinical causes of maternal morbidity and mortality.
An interdisciplinary team of experts will explore why women die from certain conditions (e.g., postpartum hemorrhage, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, infection, etc.), what can be done to identify patients at risk, and what interventions are required to reduce maternal morbidity and mortality.
