Massachusetts Success Story: Qualitative Analysis Conducted by MMMRC Identified Characteristics Pregnancy-Associated Deaths Due to Opioid Use Disorder (Apr 2022)
The number of opioid overdose deaths in Massachusetts has increased five-fold in the last 20 years. The Maternal Mortality and Morbidity Review Committee (MMMRC) prioritized review of deaths that were associated with substance use to better understand the factors that contribute to these deaths. In 2021, a qualitative analysis was completed to determine the characteristics of women who experienced pregnancy-associated deaths due to opioid use disorder (OUD).
