Worsening Maternal Mortality in the U.S.: What Physicians Need to Know
The rate of maternal mortality in the United States is, on average, three times higher than that of other highly developed nations. And if current trends continue, the rate will only get worse.
To offer information and perspective about this critical issue — and recommendations to reverse the trend — the Institute at MagMutual® has created a new article, “Worsening Maternal Mortality in the U.S.: What You Need to Know and How You Can Protect Your Patients.” It outlines the high rate of maternal mortality in the United States as compared to other developed nations and discusses the elements of the problem that healthcare providers can address. It also examines medical and socio-economic issues that physicians don’t control and that need to be addressed by society as a whole.
Our hope is that it will spur changes both in medical treatment and in public policy, education, research and data-gathering that will help decrease the high rate of maternal mortality in our country.
