External Event: Integrating Fetal and Infant Mortality Review (FIMR) and Perinatal Periods of Risk (PPOR) for Better Maternal Child Health Outcomes

June 8, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join the National Center for Fatality Review & Prevention on Tuesday, June 8 from 2-3 pm. ET for an exploration of Fetal and Infant Mortality Review (FIMR) and the Perinatal Periods of Risk (PPOR), and a discussion focused on effective structures, processes, and best practices for integrating them. The webinar will discuss commonalities, strengths, and limitations of each approach. FIMR, with it’s in depth case review and inclusion of parental/family interviews, brings both qualitative and quantitative information to groups with emphasis on community-level details and the big picture. The PPOR approach brings a complete view of excess infant mortality and the entire population at risk for infant or fetal death. Both processes involve community collaborators from multiple sectors and consider systems changes rather than specific individual behaviors or medical decisions. Community presenters will share stories of how FIMR and PPOR methodologies informed their decision making, processes, and outcomes. To learn more and register for the webinar, please click here
