Improving maternal safety at scale with the mentor model of collaborative improvement.

Main EK, Dhurjati R, Cape V, et al. Joint Commission journal on quality and patient safety. 2018;44:250-259.

This study describes the implementation of a quality improvement initiative for obstetric safety across California. Instead of a traditional statewide collaborative, this program divided participating health systems into groups of six to eight hospitals, led by a physician and nurse dyad as mentors. Participants reported that this mentored approach functioned better than the larger quality improvement collaborative model.
