Project: Pumping iron: improving management of iron deficiency in pregnancy
After doing a retrospective chart review of 280 patients in her practice, Dr. Lett was shocked to discover that 87% of her pregnant patients were iron deficient between 24 and 28 weeks and 44% were anemic in that cohort. For her CQIP project, Dr. Lett created screening and treatment algorithms for iron deficiency and anemia in pregnancy. The aim of the project was to improve access to IV iron for pregnant women in Regina.
