Informant Interview Guide for Maternal Mortality Review Committees

Informant interviews are supplementary and effective methods for collecting information that provides greater context around the events leading to a maternal death. Interviewees who knew the decedent personally can provide insight into factors that contributed to the death and the context of those factors in her life. This guide is intended as a resource in navigating the sensitive yet essential information provided to better understand the circumstances of each maternal mortality case.
