NMPC has a strong commitment to evidence-based care. Our work as the NM representative to AIM allows us to leverage a national perinatal safety network and associated resources for deployment in NM community settings. We effect change though the following initiatives:

AIM Maternal Safety Initiative

NMPC engages birthing hospitals enrolled in our Maternal Safety Initiative and perinatal care providers in a variety of settings through quality improvement and data sharing.

Immediate Postpartum LARC

NMPC collaborates with The LARC Mentoring Program to increase access to long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARC) for all women of reproductive age in New Mexico.

Improving Perinatal Health ECHO

The Improving Perinatal Health (IPH) ECHO is a tele-mentoring program offered twice monthly, providing free continuing education credits to a diverse range of perinatal care provider type. The program brings local and national content experts together, using the ECHO Model, to conduct multidisciplinary case discussions and share real examples, providing education and support for those working to improve perinatal outcomes in their local communities.

Rural Outreach Team

NMPC’s multidisciplinary Rural Outreach Team provides on-site customized trainings, simulations, and debrief sessions to New Mexico’s rural Critical Access Hospitals.

SUD in Pregnancy Workgroup

The Substance Use Disorder (SUD) in Pregnancy Workgroup supports the implementation of the AIM Maternal Safety Bundle: Caring for Pregnant and Postpartum People with Substance Use Disorder and focuses on ensuring respectful care and improving access to treatment.
