Congratulations to Kara Hoppe, DO, of the UW Ob-Gyn Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine! Hoppe earned an Evidence to Implementation grant from the UW SMPH Institute for Clinical and Translational Research. 

The grant will help Hoppe disseminate the Staying Healthy After Childbirth program, which helps new moms with high blood pressure safely monitor and treat their high blood pressure from home with telehealth guidance and support from health professionals.

Staying Healthy After Childbirth is an evidence-based program for management of postpartum high blood pressure that allows for earlier identification of rising blood pressure, resulting in earlier treatment and a reduction in readmission compared to standard care. Hoppe will use the grant to evaluate and update current promotional material as part of getting the program out to more prenatal care providers and obstetric hospitals.

E2I awards help expedite the dissemination of evidence-based practices, interventions and innovations using the Dissemination and Implementation Launchpad Program. The grant provides up to $75,000 for 18 months of direct support.

Incredible work, Dr. Hoppe!
