The Rhode Island Pregnancy and Postpartum Death Review Committee (PPDRC) is a multidisciplinary review board, first convened in 2021, that examines the deaths of people who were pregnant or within one year of pregnancy when they died. After potential areas of opportunity for change were identified, the Committee’s observations were crafted into specific, action-oriented recommendations to effect change, reiterate best practices, and most importantly, support Rhode Island’s systems of care in preventing deaths within this community.
