In deciding on a priority for moving PMR findings into population action, we compared published data on Utah maternal deaths from 1995-2002 to deaths between 2005 and 2012. The top five causes of maternal death in Utah were embolism, overdose/drug toxicity, hemorrhage, cardiac conditions and infection. We evaluated evidence-based interventions for these top causes and ultimately focused on implementing the recommendations from the Obstetric Hemorrhage Safety Bundle from the National Partnership for Maternal Safety.
