Women's and Maternal Health
At the Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH), the Oral Health Program (OHP) and the Family Home Visiting Program (FHVP) have a shared vision to improve the health outcomes of pregnant women and children in Rhode Island. This presentation will focus on successfully building a partnership that supports the outcomes for National Performance Measure 13. Not only will the presenters speak to the history of the work, they will discuss the current state and plans to advance the partnership. Some the activities covered include: focus groups, professional development, and resources by community. This unique collaboration can serve as a model for other state programs looking to improve their maternal and child health national performance measures.
