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.

This Webcast presented 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. It concludes with participant questions. The videos referenced in the presentation are part of a larger tool available from the Vermont Oxford Network.

Excellent overview on the problem, the lack of consistent treatment and the possibility of providing supportive care measures to increase positive birth outcomes.
