Overcoming the Challenges in Managing the Care of Birthing People with Substance Use Disorder

October 12, 2023 | 3 – 4 p.m.

Chairs of OB-GYN, maternal health nurse leaders, other medical staff, and nurse leaders who are part of the care team.

Please join your physician and nurse leader colleagues as we engage in an essential dialogue with Dr. Rachel Haroz, MD, FAACT, whose expertise in emergency medicine, medical toxicology, and addiction medicine will help providers navigate the complexities of working with birthing persons with or at risk for substance use disorder.

These webinars are part of a series of educational opportunities for clinicians and care team leadership engaged in the priorities of the New Jersey Perinatal Quality Collaborative’s support of hospitals’ efforts to implement the AIM patient safety bundle focused on caring for pregnant and postpartum people with substance use disorder.
