Maternal Hypertension Initiative


  Hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (HDPs) are among the leading causes of severe maternal morbidity and mortality and are preventable when caught and treated appropriately. In 2021, ALPQC will start the Maternal Hypertension (HTN) Initiative. The resources below have been compiled by an ALPQC subcommittee to help your hospital team establish protocols, processes, and education to ensure pregnant and postpartum patients with hypertension/preeclampsia are identified quickly and managed well to avoid further complications. 

ALPQC initially introduced the HTN initiative at the 2020 Annual Summit (see link for Summit agenda and slides at the bottom of this page). The kickoff for the HTN Initiative will take place on January 29,2021.
