Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome
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 2012-2013. The 2012-2013 series (which is available on CDC TRAIN) is 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, CDC began a second series of Webinars for 2013–2014, focusing on specific perinatal quality improvement initiatives.
