Abstract:

Maternal sepsis remains one of the major causes of maternal deaths worldwide, despite progress made to reduce maternal mortality rates; roughly 300,000 women worldwide still die due to pregnancy-related complications every year.
Following the WHO anti-sepsis recommendations, our team took an implementation initiative to build innovations to achieve change and witness a drop in MMR through the awareness of the health workers.
Integrating the 2016 WHO recommendations into our facility (ASUMH, Cairo-Egypt) standard practice and highlighting the evidence-based practices as effective innovations we were able to track change; 25% to 88% of our staff adopted new practice behavior following our implementation plan. (P-value >0.05 NS; p-value <0.05 S; p-value <0.001 HS)
We believe that through learning and education, our staff can maintain the improvement cycles and constructively deliver the best-practice methods to our patients.
