Brief Overview of State MMR or PAMR
In Delaware, the Child Death Review Commission received statutory authority to review maternal deaths in 2011 with the first meeting held later that year. Our goal is to conduct in depth, multidisciplinary reviews of all pregnancy-associated and -related deaths in an effort to track factors, identify system wide issues and recommendations and implement action steps to improve health for mothers. We meet biannually. We identify cases by the pregnancy checkbox on the death certificate and vital statistics linkage of birth and death certificates.
