Purpose: The current opioid epidemic is driving a heightened focus on substance use disorder (SUD) prevention and treatment for pregnant and parenting women, who have unique needs and face unique challenges. However, gaps in care often remain, particularly during the postpartum period. This NASHP webinar, supported by the Health Resources and Services Administration, will highlight a state that is coordinating across agencies and systems to meet the needs of pregnant and parenting women affected by SUD. Speakers from Colorado will describe the coverage, financing, and care delivery strategies that their state agencies and safety net providers leverage to facilitate recovery among pregnant and parenting women with SUD, including opportunities for cross-system collaboration. Register here.

This webinar will highlight the racial disparities in California maternal mortality overall and – using cardiovascular disease (CVD) as a case study – will review quality improvement data and opportunities for implementing the CVD screening algorithm to better identify and provide timely treatment for all women, especially those with higher rates of CVD during pregnancy and postpartum such as African-American women.
