Brief Overview of State MMR or PAMR

In DE, the CDRC received statutory authority to review maternal deaths in 2011 with the first meeting held later that year. Our goal is to conduct in depth, multidisciplinary reviews of pregnancy-related and some pregnancy-associated deaths in an effort to track factors, identify system wide issues and recommendations and implement action steps to improve health for mothers. We meet biannually.
