Overview of Identifying and Selecting Pregnancy-Associated Deaths

Many committee members find it beneficial to hear a brief overview of the process for identifying and selecting cases for abstraction and review. Such an overview fosters engagement of committee members in the entire maternal mortality review process and offers a system of checks and balances to the case identification and selection process.

Items to consider for this discussion may include the process used for identification, a summary of cases identified and the process for sending cases for abstraction.
