AIM CCI Bundle Glossary
To promote equity, inclusivity, and respect, AIM CCI has created this glossary of recommended terminology to provide context around the use of language that may be found throughout our work. AIM CCI language reflects the diversity of our programs, the audience we serve, and our community-driven initiatives.
Clinical- Community Integration Roadmap
AIM CCI created the Clinical – Community Integration Roadmap as a framework to support a perinatal system of care at the local community level to coalesce a network of providers around the shared goal to improve maternal outcomes. This model centers the woman / birthing person in the daily processes, organizational and community structures, and culture to ensure that every woman/birthing person, from pregnancy through the first year postpartum, receives equitable care that addresses medical, behavioral health, and psychosocial needs.
This Roadmap will guide the establishment of local collaborative teams, including both clinical and social service providers, and other provider organizations that touch pregnancy and postpartum persons, to function collectively as the community’s Local Maternal Safety Workgroup (LMSW).
The AIM CCI Communications Planning Guide presents customizable strategies and tools for pilot and implementation sites to maximize communications efforts among internal and external partners in Maternal Child Health, including Local Maternal Safety Workgroups (LMSW). Each section focuses on a specific area of communications, such as audience segmentation, social media planning, and digital storytelling.
AIM CCI partnered with subject matter experts to develop online learning series that support key concepts found in our Community Care maternal safety bundles. These courses are self-guided modules to further a learner’s awareness, skills, and knowledge. The AIM CCI learning series are accredited by the American Public Health Association (APHA) and each course offers continuing education credits for various disciplines including physicians (CME), nurses (CNE), certified health education specialists (CHES), certified in public health (CPH), and other public health professionals.

Maternal Monologues for Community Conversations and Action
Maternal Monologues are community presentations of stories by women/birthing persons, their partners, and supporters along the journey of birthing and maternal health. These stories are based on real experiences, and designed to serve as a tool for communities to tell their own stories for healing, raising awareness, and mobilizing for change.
Mary Denise shares her birth experience with her son David, over 40 years ago, after learning that racial disparities in care and outcomes still persist decades later.
*Advisory: Content describing pregnancy loss, miscarriage, and traumatic birth experiences is included.
