PQC4ME’s new community partners include In Her Presence, Maine Primary Care Association and Greater Portland Health, one of Maine’s 20 Community Health Centers, and Public Health Nursing, part of the Maine Centers for Disease Prevention and Control . These organizations conducted focus groups and interviews with patients and clients to obtain feedback on hypertension patient education materials used by birthing hospitals. Language, cultural sensitivity, and literacy were assessed with results used to improve educational materials as well as how education is integrated into prenatal and postpartum care.
