The National AIA Resource Center joins the Children’s Bureau, the National Center on Substance Abuse and Child Welfare, and the National Institute on Drug Abuse in presenting Substance Exposed Newborns: Collaborative Approaches to a Complex Issue.

This national summit will convene approximately 250 professionals from the fields of child welfare, maternal-child health, obstetrics, pediatrics, nursing, social work, courts, and drug treatment for interdisciplinary dialogue, information sharing, and exploration of policies and collaborative approaches to prevent, identify and address the needs of substance exposed newborns (SEN).

Through various formats, this summit will showcase exemplary policies and practices for identifying pregnant substance users and their newborns; referring them to child welfare, treatment and other community services; and developing plans of safe care for the newborns. Participants also will have an opportunity to engage in cross-disciplinary discussions to explore challenges, best practices, and future directions in addressing the needs of pregnant substance users and SEN.
