Abstract

Rates of maternal morbidity and mortality in the United States have increased since 1990. Registered nurses are members of the health care work force who provide essential care to women during pregnancy, during birth, and after birth. Tools are needed to more effectively measure and track the effect of nursing care on maternal health outcomes. The Association of Women's Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses and the Association of Maternal & Child Health Programs co-convened an expert panel to develop a set of tools for use by public health and clinical leaders to support this effort.
