High Impact Practice Sets (HIPS) for Outpatient Settings: Caring for People with SUD to Improve Maternal Health Webinar

This webinar will present high impact practices to care for people with substance use disorder (SUD) in the outpatient sexual and reproductive health setting. This webinar is part of a series on High Impact Practice Sets (HIPS) that address leading causes of maternal mortality and racial disparities in maternal health. These practices were adapted from the Alliance for Innovation on Maternal Health (AIM) Patient Safety Bundles by the RHNTC in collaboration with the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG). Speakers will describe the impact of SUD on maternal health, including on racial disparities in maternal morbidity and mortality; the importance of addressing SUD in the reproductive health setting; high impact practices for addressing SUD; and new RHNTC resources to help address SUD.
