    Second Annual Conference: March 2013

    Overview, Materials and Presentations

    We at the Florida Perinatal Quality Collaborative were extremely pleased with the turnout for our Second Annual Conference in March. In fact, participation from our stakeholders increased by almost 40% over last year's Conference. What a remarkable sign that Florida's perinatal practitioners and proponents are supporting our initiatives to improve the health outcomes of mothers and babies through evidence-based practices!

    For those who were unable to attend, we received tremendous feedback from attendees on the presentations by our nationally esteemed speakers. Topics included detailed information on The Joint Commission's new required perinatal core measures, California's QI protocol for antenatal steroids in women threatening preterm delivery, methods to sustain a state perinatal quality collaborative, Ohio's best practices for progesterone to prevent preterm birth in singleton pregnancies and strategies for implementing exclusive breast milk feeding at maternity facilities. In addition to our own update and panel on the FPQC's current neonatal catheter associated bloodstream infection (NCABSI) initiative, we offered attendees break-out sessions (peer-to-peer discussions) on critical topics - such as neonatal abstinence syndrome and early elective deliveries - so they could share their specific facility's experiences and systems. Finally, more than twenty hospitals and organizations shared posters on their individual obstetric and neonatal QI initiatives taking place.

    Attendees came from all over the state and from multiple disciplines and professions so the Conference served as an outstanding platform for peer networking. Due to the Conference's success, we already are starting to plan next year's Conference and hope to deliver the same high-quality learning and networking environment.

2013
On September 27, 2013, the Florida Perinatal Quality Collaborative held its annual Infant Health Advisory Subcommittee meeting for Florida’s Level III and Level II NICUs. With teams of representatives from 26 NICUs statewide, the meeting served as an excellent platform for centers to network and to learn about what other centers currently are implementing as QI initiatives within their own facilities. In addition, the FPQC updated these stakeholders on the status of our neonatal catheter associated blood stream infections (NCABSI) initiative, the launch of our new Golden Hour Part I: Delivery Room Management initiative and Florida’s challenges and opportunities presented by the Department of Health’s new task force on neonatal abstinence syndrome.
