Regional Forums

Each year, WAPC offers a series of Regional Forums. The forums focus on a single curriculum about a relevant perinatal topic and are presented in each of the state’s seven perinatal regions.

WAPC uses a variety of sources to determine and document practice gaps in perinatal care. The planning process for programs and educational activities depends on input from expert clinicians from the continuum of perinatal care.

2016 Regional Forums: Accelerating Improvement Across the Continuum: Antibiotic Stewardship for Newborns and Treating Hypertension in Pregnancy and Postpartum—What’s the connection?
