Illinois Perinatal Quality Collaborative (ILPQC) Title V

Project: Research project

Project Details


Objective: Through collaborative learning, rapid response data, and QI support, ILPQC will help hospital teams to improve care for mothers and newborns affected by opioids by (1) improving screening and linkage to care to identify moms with opioid use disorder (OUD) and linking them to addiction treatment; (2) optimizing care for moms with OUD by improving prenatal, labor and delivery, and postpartum care and protocols, and through patient education; and, (3) preventing future opioid use disorder by educating all moms and reducing opioid overprescribing. Activity: The ILPQC team will engage hospital teams in a series of quality improvement activities modeled after other state PQC work including monthly webinars, face-to-face collaborative learning, rapid-response data, and QI support. Aims and measures were developed with the support of the ILPQC MNO Workgroup, OB Advisory Workgroup, and input from hospital teams. The active initiative will run from 2018 through mid-2020 with sustainability beginning in mid to late 2020.
