CDC Webinar: Perinatal Quality Collaboratives

CDC Webinar: Perinatal Quality Collaboratives

Division of Reproductive Health Global Activity eUpdate

Join Us for a Webinar!

Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome

Thursday, November 21, 1:00pm – 2:30pm Eastern Time

State Perinatal Quality Collaboratives (PQCs) are networks of perinatal care providers and public health professionals, working to improve pregnancy outcomes for women and newborns by advancing evidence-based clinical practices and processes.
CDC funds statewide PQCs in California, New York, and Ohio and worked with these networks to sponsor a series of Webinars from October 2012 through August 2013. These Webinars were intended to help PQCs share knowledge and experiences, and teach other states how to start, maintain, and grow their own collaboratives. Due to an overwhelming response, a second series of Webinars will be held every two months in 2013–2014, focusing on specific perinatal quality improvement initiatives. Webinars are available to participants in all states.

This Webcast will present a discussion of Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) and quality improvement projects undertaken by perinatal and neonatal quality improvement collaboratives to address NAS, including project challenges and successes. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and participate in the discussion.
Advance registration is strongly encouraged due to space limitations.
