Any perinatal health advocates interested in improving perinatal health outcomes – the 2023 Join Perinatal Improvement Summit will take place November 15-16, 2023, in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota at the Minneapolis Marriot Northwest. This year’s event is hosted by Minnesota Perinatal Quality Collaborative (MNPQC), Hennepin Healthcare, and Minnesota Hospital Association.
Those who should consider attending include obstetrician, neonatologists, pediatricians, nurse midwives, and other perinatal healthcare practitioners, nurses, lactation counselors, perinatal health educators, social workers, quality leaders, administrators, payers, public health professionals, and all advocates interested in perinatal health.
Within the Perinatal Summit, the Perinatal Substance Use Workforce Development project will be offering a team-based “boot camp” training for professionals who care for pregnant people who use drugs. Over the course of two days, this boot camp will cover the basics of managing care with special considerations for the perinatal period and will provide tailored content for RNs, clinicians, and administrators.
It is strongly recommended that organizations send teams with a provider champion, a charge or lead nurse, and an admin/operational support person to best foster institutional programming that provides evidence-based treatment of Perinatal substance use disorders.
