Alabama Maternal Mortality Review Committee (AL-MMRC)

Action CycleThe AL-MMRC is vital in understanding the multifactorial circumstances that impact maternal deaths. As cases are identified for further review, vital records, including medical charts, death certificates, and autopsy reports, are gathered to create a comprehensive narrative for committee members to review. Each case is vetted by experts in a variety of areas to understand the circumstances surrounding mortality. A standard decisions form systematically captures important factors pertaining to each death. This information is then analyzed collectively as a step towards putting forth strategies to combat this issue.
