Current Projects

    • Hypertension in Pregnancy (HIP)

      Hypertension in Pregnancy (HIP) Initiative

      Interest in an initiative focused on Hypertension in Pregnancy has grown in Florida and nationally. From 1999-2012 hypertensive disorders caused 15.5% of pregnancy-related deaths. Maternal mortality review reports from North Carolina and California found that maternal deaths due to hypertensive disorders had significant prevention opportunities. Hypertension will be the FPQC's next focus to reduce maternal morbidity and mortality.
      Hospital Recruitment will begin Summer 2015 for a Fall 2015 kick-off.

    • Mother's Own Milk (MOM) in the NICU

      Mothers Own Milk

      The aim of this project is to increase the number of very low birth weight (VLBW) infants in Florida who receive mothers own milk (MOM) at NICU discharge by focusing on intent to provide breast milk, establishing and maintaining mothers' supply, and transitioning to the breast.
