You can make a difference for families impacted by prenatal substance exposure. If you work in a medical setting, join one or both of our collaborative tracks at no cost.

Education track

Perinatal providers will be given the option to complete self-assessment activities, review and discuss best practices through a remote live learning sessions, and/or develop a strategic vision for their hospital.

Participants will gain a resource referral network of topic experts and peers from around the state.

quality improvement track

Partner hospitals will be asked to form hospital teams, use structured quality improvement methods, and share of data and practices to further support hospital-based improvement efforts to achieve measurable improvements to the care of opiate-exposed newborns and their families.

Participants will be eligible for MOC Part 4 credit.

All hospitals within the Collaborative will have access to an online resource library and will be invited to participate in semiannual forums to share their progress. 

Participation in this collaborative project is free and voluntary, and birthing hospitals from both urban and rural areas are invited based on the following criteria:

  1. Interest in addressing this issue;

  2. For the Learning Track: Commitment to participate in assessment and education activities;

  3. For the Quality Improvement Track: Commitment to collect and share associated de-identified data; and

  4. Commitment to participate in semiannual forums to share lessons learned
