National Partnership for Maternal Safety Consensus Bundles: Correction

        Information about the relationship between the Council on Patient Safety in Women’s Health Care, its Industry Forum, and the working group responsible for writing the bundles was not disclosed in the following articles:
        • National Partnership for Maternal Safety: Consensus Bundle on Obstetric Hemorrhage (Main et al., 2015),
        • National Partnership for Maternal Safety: Consensus Bundle on Venous Thromboembolism (D’Alton et al., 2016),
        • Consensus Bundle on Prevention of Surgical Site Infections After Major Gynecologic Surgery (Pellegrini et al., 2017),
        • Consensus Bundle on Maternal Mental Health: Perinatal Depression and Anxiety (Kendig et al., 2017),
        • Consensus Bundle on Severe Hypertension During Pregnancy and the Postpartum Period (Bernstein et al., 2017),
        • National Partnership for Maternal Safety: Consensus Bundle on Safe Reduction of Primary Cesarean Births—Supporting Intended Vaginal Births (Lagrew et al., 2018), and
        • Reduction of Peripartum Racial and Ethnic Disparities: A Conceptual Framework and Maternal Safety Consensus Bundle (Howell et al., 2018).
        This correction is being issued to offer increased transparency to readers.
        The National Partnership for Maternal Safety, the coalition of organizations that produces the consensus bundles, works within the Council on Patient Safety in Women’s Health Care (the Council). The working groups responsible for writing the bundles are convened using experts in their respective fields. The working groups are supported by staff of the Alliance for Innovation in Maternal Health (AIM) program, which is funded by a Health Resources and Services Administration grant. The Council approves all of the consensus bundles.
        The Council receives unrestricted funds in the form of membership dues from members of the Industry Forum. Members of the Industry Forum are listed online at https://safehealthcareforeverywoman.org/about-us/industry-forum/. The Council’s Industry Forum was not involved in the development or writing of the bundles. Members of the working group who wrote the bundles did not receive any direct financial benefit from the Council’s Industry Forum. The financial disclosures of the authors, if any, are published with the original consensus bundle articles.
        With regard to the article, “National Partnership for Maternal Safety: Consensus Bundle on Venous Thromboembolism” (D’Alton et al., 2016), three companies that are part of the Industry Forum manufacture or sell anticoagulant medications. The bundle recommends a broader indication for the use of anticoagulants but does not specify a brand or manufacturer.

            Obstetric venous thromboembolism is a leading cause of severe maternal morbidity and mortality. Maternal death from thromboembolism is amenable to prevention, and thromboprophylaxis is the most readily implementable means of systematically reducing the maternal death rate. Observational data support the benefit of risk-factor-based prophylaxis in reducing obstetric thromboembolism. This bundle, developed by a multidisciplinary working group and published by the National Partnership for Maternal Safety under the guidance of the Council on Patient Safety in Women's Health Care, supports routine thromboembolism risk assessment for obstetric patients, with appropriate use of pharmacologic and mechanical thromboprophylaxis.

          • Preview
            Racial and ethnic disparities exist in both perinatal outcomes and health care quality. For example, Black women are three to four times more likely to die from pregnancy-related causes and have more than a twofold greater risk of severe maternal morbidity than White women. In an effort to achieve health equity in maternal morbidity and mortality, a multidisciplinary workgroup of the National Partnership for Maternal Safety, within the Council on Patient Safety in Women’s Health Care, developed a concept article for the bundle on reduction of peripartum disparities.

            Perinatal mood and anxiety disorders are among the most common mental health conditions encountered by women of reproductive age. When left untreated, perinatal mood and anxiety disorders can have profound adverse effects on women and their children, ranging from increased risk of poor adherence to medical care, exacerbation of medical conditions, loss of interpersonal and financial resources, smoking and substance use, suicide, and infanticide. Perinatal mood and anxiety disorders are associated with increased risks of maternal and infant mortality and morbidity and are recognized as a significant patient safety issue.

            Cesarean births and associated morbidity and mortality have reached near epidemic proportions. The National Partnership for Maternal Safety under the guidance of the Council on Patient Safety in Women's Health Care responded by developing a patient safety bundle to reduce the number of primary cesarean births. Safety bundles outline critical practices to implement in every maternity unit. This National Partnership for Maternity Safety bundle, as with other bundles, is organized into four domains: Readiness, Recognition and Prevention, Response, and Reporting and Systems Learning.

            Complications arising from hypertensive disorders of pregnancy are among the leading causes of preventable severe maternal morbidity and mortality. Timely and appropriate treatment has the potential to significantly reduce hypertension-related complications. To assist health care providers in achieving this goal, this patient safety bundle provides guidance to coordinate and standardize the care provided to women with severe hypertension during pregnancy and the postpartum period. This is one of several patient safety bundles developed by multidisciplinary work groups of the National Partnership for Maternal Safety under the guidance of the Council on Patient Safety in Women's Health Care.

        • Consensus Bundle on Prevention of Surgical Site Infections After Major Gynecologic Surgery
          Journal of Obstetric, Gynecologic & Neonatal NursingVol. 46Issue 1
          • Preview
            Surgical site infections are the most common complications of surgery in the United States. Of surgeries in women of reproductive age, hysterectomy is one of the most frequently performed, second only to cesarean birth. Therefore, prevention of surgical site infections in women undergoing gynecologic surgery is an ideal topic for a patient safety bundle. The primary purpose of this safety bundle is to provide recommendations that can be implemented into any surgical environment in an effort to reduce the incidence of surgical site infection.
