Translational research is the ability to take evidence-based practice and formulate it into a plan of action. Equitable health care is the ability to have health care for all cultures, race, and socioeconomic classes. A growing number of burdens of chronic diseases affects women and children, advancing technology can have a positive effect on improving Maternal health (Lu, 2018). Maternal and Child health is an issue in health care that carries a lot of weight to the population as monitoring how children grow and the protection of the mother in caring for her child. Maternal health historically has had lower funding and placed in a back to other studies as related to “higher needs to health care diseases”.

Maternal health should be an area of focus in our society Washington Senate bill 5086 in the Washington legislature is focused on improving maternal health outcomes by improving maternal access to behavioral health and health care past the routine postpartum coverage that was only 60 days(S. Resolution 5068, 2021). Approximately 700 people die from pregnancy- related complications each year, the majority are preventable yet can happen later in the postpartum period, by extending this coverage for all women will close this gap. This bill also enables women with significant racial and ethnic disparities to have improved access to care. The CDC finds most pregnancy related deaths happen with in the first year postpartum, including suicide, overdose, and health related issues(S. Resolution 5068, 2021). This Bill could save lives and improve patient outcomes, utilizing this bill partnered with the evidential research, it can be instituted in all cultures and racial ethnicities thus improving health and decreasing deaths in the 1st Postpartum year

Hello Deanna,

I do agree with you that translational research is crucial is incorporating the EBP outcome into nursing practice. This promotes quality care that is consistent with the emerging trends and challenges in the healthcare system. One of the emerging crucial healthcare challenges is maternal health. The EBP projects on promoting equity and quality care in maternal health has attracted numerous research topics. The nature of the research is crucial since there are need to ensure that the health of the mothers and children are safeguarded. Maternal health has been underfunded and less resources have been invested into this critical aspect of population health (Dunlop et al., 2021). Prenatal care, safe delivery and postpartum care services need to be made accessible and affordable to all members of the population. In the wake of the covid-19 outbreak, there is need to carry out more research on the effects to maternal health, impact of vaccine and how the expectant mothers can be protected from the health-related effects of the vaccine (Rasmussen & Jamieson, 2021).
