AIM Produced E-Modules

Welcome to the Severe Hypertension (HTN) in Pregnancy AIM eModules where we will review the 4 domains of the Severe HTN in Pregnancy patient safety bundle. 

  • Severe Hypertension: Readiness The goal of the Readiness domain is to identify strategies and tools that are available to support evaluation and management of women with severe hypertension in pregnancy. 
  • Severe Hypertension: Recognition The goal of the Recognition domain is to review standardized measurement and assessment strategies for women with hypertension in pregnancy and to discuss key principles in educating women and their families during the prenatal and postpartum periods.     
  • Severe Hypertension: Response The goal of the Response domain is to identify the need for facility-wide standard protocols with checklists and escalation policies and outline patient, family, and staff support for ICU admissions and serious complications of severe hypertension in pregnancy. 
  • Severe Hypertension: Reporting The goal of the Reporting domain is to describe how a culture of huddles and post event debriefs can demonstrate successes and opportunities for system learning, as well as review how multidisciplinary quality improvement and review of serious hypertension, preeclampsia, and eclampsia cases can improve outcomes.
