As with any ongoing quality improvement initiative, we understand that it is challenging to maintain consistent progress. Staff turnover, updates in guidelines, and changing team dynamics can all pose significant obstacles – especially in healthcare.

The SMI at your Grand Rounds


Grand Rounds have traditionally been used as unique opportunities to learn from patient cases and engage in dialogue with hospital colleagues. They are an important training tool that allow clinical teams to review procedures and protocols in a non-threatening environment conducive to professional growth.

The Safe Motherhood Initiative Grand Rounds provide an opportunity for your institution to:

  • Discuss bundle implementation strategies
  • Review specific clinical components within each of the bundles
  • Understand how teams should effectively utilize standardized protocols across departments

The Grand Rounds will be delivered free-of-charge by SMI Faculty who are practicing OBGYNs local to your institution. This ensures their familiarity with the existing clinical culture and lends credibility to the information they present.

Having the Safe Motherhood Initiative present during Grand Rounds will further integrate the bundles in your hospital's practice. SMI institutions have found these presentations to be extremely valuable in implementing the Initiative, and often request that Faculty return for additional Grand Rounds.
