Baseline Facility Surveys – Click below for different survey resources:
1) Assessing Your Practice – provided by the DATA team, Abt Associates. This is a large pdf file, but we thought that in particular pages 2-4, 7-8, 13-16, 19-21, 24-28, 34 may be helpful to your team.
2) PCHHC Pilot Practice Survey – this was piloted by Dr. Frayne when he was working with the Magnolia Clinic in Florida. This pre-intervention practice survey gathers information about the practice itself, but also about some current preconception risk screening activities.
3) Cross-Functional Flowchart & Matrix Templates – These have been used extensively in primary care and OB settings to document patient flow and roles & responsibilities of staff. Also attached is an example documenting tobacco cessation screening and cessation counseling in a clinic. – click here to view a sample completed Flowchart & Matrix Template.

About HRSA MCHB Preconception Infant Mortality CoIIN
The Center for Maternal and Infant Health at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC CMIH) received new funding to reduce infant mortality and improve birth outcomes by advancing the status of women’s preconception health (health and wellness prior to pregnancy), particularly for low-income women and women of color in some of the country’s most underserved communities.
This funding is one of four cooperative agreements awarded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Health Resources and Services Administration Maternal and Child Health Bureau (HRSA MCHB) to a national coalition supported by UNC CMIH, the National Preconception Health and Health Care Initiative (PCHHC). Funding will be administered through UNC School of Social Work.
Supported by and within HRSA MCHB’s Collaborative Improvement and Innovation Network on Infant Mortality (IM CoIIN) initiative, this Preconception CoIIN team will develop, implement, and disseminate a woman-centered, clinician-engaged, community-supported approach to the well-woman visit. With this funding, UNC CMIH will work with four state teams: California, Delaware, North Carolina, and Oklahoma.
