RI MomsPRN Learning Collaborative: Cannabis Use in Perinatal Period

  • 13 Sep 2023

The RI Maternal Psychiatry Resource Network (RI MomsPRN) Program funded by the RI Department of Health, in partnership with CTC-RI, hosted our final learning collaborative meeting which included a presentation by Anupriya Gogne, MD on “Cannabis Use in the Perinatal Period”.  Participating practices that have completed 15 months of this quality improvement initiative reported on their progress and shared success stories. The slide deck shared to the group of healthcare providers and staff across the state may be found here. The meeting also included a highlight from DCYF staff about efforts to connect the individuals to a Peer Recovery Specialist and other services. Linked here is a flyer which details the BCBSRI bias training opportunity mentioned during the meeting. The session recording is linked here.
