The Importance of Implementation Principles to Improve Obstetrics and Healthcare

Dr. Brian Iriye will highlight the need for the implementation of evidence-based solutions obtained from medical research. Over the years, systems have attempted to put various care bundles and other tools in place with mixed success in actually improving healthcare outcomes on a national scale. Implementation science takes evidence-based interventions and teaches us how to put that research to purposeful use in the real world. The principles of implementation science need to be embraced in obstetric practice. This program will help attendees understand the importance of this new and changing field to further improve maternal health and obstetric outcomes
