CA-PAMR Pregnancy-Related Committee

The CA-PAMR Pregnancy-Related Committee, comprised of multi-disciplinary clinical experts in maternal, perinatal and public health, reviews cases to determine the causes of maternal mortality and to make recommendations concerning quality improvement opportunities in maternity care and public health strategies to prevent maternal deaths in California. CA-PAMR findings and recommendations directly inform CMQCC's priority quality improvement projects.

Reports from CA-PAMR are available on the CMQCC website.
