- Obstetric Care for Women with Opioid Use Disorder
- Cardiac Conditions in Obstetrical Care (In Development)
- Postpartum Discharge Transition Bundle (In Development)

Nevada AIM had its Kickoff event June 24, 2021. The kickoff event was tailored for leadership of Nevada’s 18 birthing hospitals and provider champions and provided an opportunity to learn about AIM’s structured way of improving processes of care and patient outcomes. Facilities choosing to participate will be able to access data to compare Nevada hospitals on defined benchmarks, join targeted trainings, and receive guidance and information on evidence-based practices to prevent maternal mortality.
For those of you who missed the AIM kickoff event, you can view the recording here and find the associated presentations and Facility Readiness Tool (FRAT) under the resources tab.
