Project Summary

We started our Tier I contract with two research investigators and the goal of preterm birth prevention. After Tier I, our collaborative now includes obstetricians, public health departments, a nonprofit health plan, home-visitation nurses, and patients.  The emphasis of our project has morphed from one of simply promoting the prevention of preterm birth to one of promoting the prevention of preterm birth as a component of prenatal care. In Tier II, we will strengthen partnerships already in place as well as create new ones. We will reach out to additional stakeholders, such as midwives and state policy makers. Most importantly, we plan to increase the community and patient voice while also working to develop the ultimate comparative effectiveness research question.
