Though awareness and recognition of disparities within maternal health have increased in recent years, persistent racial and ethnic disparities in both maternal morbidity and mortality in the United States remain. In fact, standardized maternal mortality reporting practices from 2018-2020 in the U.S. demonstrated that non-Hispanic Black birthing people die at a rate approximately 3x higher than that of their non-Hispanic White and Hispanic counterparts. It is imperative that clinicians recognize the root causes and the impacts of health inequities in pregnant and postpartum patients, and utilize this knowledge to create individualized, holistic treatment plans with the goal of improving outcomes in maternal care.
In this CME Outfitters BriefCase, we will follow Macy, a 30-year-old Black woman, through the highs and lows of her pregnancy and postpartum journey. Expert faculty will discuss the nuances of the case and will highlight best practices related to integrating assessments of social determinants of health and maternal mental health, as well as the importance of implementing a team-based care model into standard maternal care practices.
At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:
- Identify the impact of health inequities on pregnant and post-partum patients.
- Individualize a holistic treatment plan for maternal care to improve patient and infant outcomes.
