SETTING THE FOUNDATION

The Family Voice
Resource(s) Comments
Voices of Impact The Voices of Impact video series is available through the Council on Patient Safety in Women’s Health Care. The goal of the Voices of Impact video series is to elevate the voices of women and families who have experienced severe maternal events. Putting voices to the numbers can bring awareness to this critical issue and empower women and their care providers to make a positive impact.

Getting Started
Resource(s) Comments
Always Events Toolkit Always Events(R) are defined as those aspects of the care experience that should always occur when patients, their family members or other care partners, and service users interact with health care professionals and the health care delivery system. A one page overview is also available.
Illinois Perinatal Quality Collaborative (ILPQC) The section describing the Severe Maternal Hypertension Initiative contains useful information.
Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) The Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI), an independent not-for-profit organization based in Boston, Massachusetts, is a leading innovator, convener, partner, and driver of results in health and health care improvement worldwide. At its core, IHI believes everyone should get the best care and health possible. IHI has a commitment to Person- and Family-Centered Care. This page lists resources for getting started.
PDSA Worksheet This worksheet is a component of IHI’s QI Essential Toolkit. The Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) cycle is a useful tool for documenting a test of change. Use this worksheet for each change you test.
QI Project Charter The QI Project Charter provides a rationale and roadmap for team to clarify thinking about what needs to be done and why.
Walk-through Walk-throughs enable providers to understand the experience of care from the patient’s and family’s points of view by going through the experience themselves.
