Webinar series: Pregnancy-Associated Deaths Due to Behavioral Health Conditions (CME-accredited**)
The MaMHA CME-accredited** recorded webinar series is offered to Washington State maternal-child health care providers and prescribers who want to lower the risk of suicide and accidental opioid overdose for their perinatal patients. The series is presented by the WA Maternal Mental Health Access (MaMHA) project with support through the Washington State Department of Health.
What is it?
Formatted as didactic and case discussion, the series draws on topics intended to fill gaps identified in the WA 2014-2016 Maternal Mortality Review Panel report. The report found that, among pregnancy-related deaths, the leading underlying cause was behavioral health conditions, including suicide and overdose (30%). Facilitated by UW Medicine psychiatrists and physicians, the program is designed to expand perinatal mental health and add care capacity in Washington State.
The series will provide access to:
- UW specialists in perinatal and addiction psychiatry and quality improvement methods
- Evidence-based strategies to treat perinatal mental health conditions and substance use
- Feedback and recommendations on clinical practice change to improve patient outcomes
- CME credits (this course meets state licensure requirements for all medical professionals)**
- Recordings will be available for CME credit October 5, 2021- October 4, 2023.
Participants will leave with tools and resources to:
- Address and lower suicide risk and accidental opioid overdose in their perinatal patient population
- Deliver improved clinical interventions and approaches to address gaps in care
- Direct effective practice change to address pregnancy associated deaths
