Perinatal Periods of Risk: Using Data and Community Involvement to Prevent Infant Mortality
Communities with high infant mortality rates can benefit by using the Perinatal Periods of Risk (PPOR) approach, which brings community stakeholders together around fetal and infant mortality. PPOR provides a framework, steps, and tools for extracting as much information as possible from vital records data, and utilizing it to prioritize prevention activities. This session will begin by outlining PPOR analysis from start to finish, showing where the numbers come from, how to make "PPOR Maps" and how to use Phase 2 analysis to help your team make the greatest impact on local infant mortality. The session will also explain the role of community stakeholders, and what communities need in order to use PPOR successfully.
