17P & the MNPQC - what does it mean to you?
As a healthcare provider, you're most likely familiar with the terms "17P" and "progesterone" in relation to reducing preterm birth. But what does it mean to you? Are their changes to procedures or guidelines of which you're unaware? Are there ways to ensure your patients get treated in a timely manner? MNPQC's 17P Statewide Workgroup has been formulating a QI project to assist not only providers, but entire healthcare systems, review their internal process(es): identification of potential candidates, procurement of progesterone supplies, patient engagement, and documentation resources. Register to attend Dr Yasuko Yamamura's session at the upcoming MPO Fall Conference to get the latest updates and see if there are changes your organization can incorporate to decrease MN's preterm birth rate. Looking for more information on the MNPQC, it's current initiatives, and to see the full 17P Statewide Workgroup membership, visit our MNPQC page.
Established by AmeriFace and cleftAdvocate
Cleft and craniofacial conditions affect thousands of infants, children, teens and adults in the United States each year. Some are born with congenital anomalies like cleft lip and palate, others with more complex, life-threatening craniofacial conditions. Some are burned; others are injured in accidents and animal attacks, or diagnosed with various oral/head/neck and skin diseases. To learn more about these conditions, including treatment options and support networks in your area, contact these participating NCCAPM organizations.
