What's New in CPSP
Be Prepared For Your Quality Assurance Visit! 

There are three new requirements that we look for during Quality Assurance Visits:
1) Make sure the supervising physician has completed the Provider Oversight Addendum to indicate how they are overseeing CPSP services. Once the form is completed, keep a copy with your protocols and fax or email a copy to our office: (213) 639-1034 or cpsp@ph.lacounty.gov 
2) Steps to Take Guidelines have been updated for 2013. Order or print your copy today!
3) Hospital delivery records are now required as part of the chart review during CPSP QA visits in LA County. This will ensure that CPSP providers are informed of any complications during birth that may affect postpartum care and future pregnancies. The delivery record documentation should be the typewritten discharge summary or a legible copy of the delivery room record, and must include the infant’s weight, Apgar scores, the type of delivery, and any complications.

Introducing LA MOMS (Los Angeles Managing Obesity in Moms)

In Los Angeles County 1 in 3 women of reproductive age are overweight or obese, affecting a disproportionately high number of Hispanic and African American women. Maternal overweight and obesity are linked to poor birth outcomes and lower breastfeeding rates. LA MOMs will provide new mothers guidance on nutrition, physical activity, breastfeeding and stress reduction, with the goal of reducing obesity among postpartum women in Los Angeles County. To sign up for the LA MOMS newsletter or refer a new mom to the program, please email lamoms@ph.lacounty.gov .
