Our Initiatives

MNPQC is working with community partners and leaders to improve outcomes in the following areas. Our initiatives are reviewed and selected by the steering committee based on need for Minnesota families, evidence-based research, and the ability to make sustainable change.

Prematurity is the second leading cause of infant death in Minnesota (MN) and is associated with 24.7% of infant deaths from 2012-2016.

Hypertension in Pregnancy

MNPQC is hosting a statewide quality improvement initiative to improve the identification, treatment, and follow up of hypertension in pregnancy and the postpartum period.


Mother/Infant Opioid Substance Use Treatment and Recovery Effort

This initiative aims to decrease misuse of opioids, inform providers of alternatives to prescribing opioids, and increase identification and treatment of opioid misuse.
