OK clOUDi Experts, for your review, the Charter we have approved and wish to finalize by April 30 and the revised draft of action plan elements related to proper patient identification and evaluation from our 1 April meeting. We have incorporated the Plan of Safe Care reporting requirements as a secondary driver for units to consider in developing guidelines for CC4C referral. Please review and get back to us with any suggestions. Prayers for safety and sanity for all of you and thankfulness for your participation in clOUDi development!
For those of you who may have missed one, the first six webinars are available here.

Given the work at each of your facilities in preparing for and dealing with COVID 19 we have cancelled the remaining webinar but we still want/need/value your participation.  We recognize that the work will need to proceed around your schedule rather than adhering to our webinar schedule. The new outline of the work flow look like this:

  • We will send out a link to a document / issue for discussion or a draft for feedback
  • You'll have 10 days can respond back via email with your comments/suggestions/edits
  • We'll do our best to incorporate the changes
  • In the next email we'll send the next iteration for discussion or possibly approval of the final version
  • Repeat until we've finished all the components needed for a successful initiative
  • Remember, we need your email feedback, especially as we won't be having any further calls for the foreseeable future - the more feedback you provide, the stronger the initiative!

With each initiative complicated issues arise that might need more discussion than is allowed for in the hour long meetings - these will be added to the agenda and addressed at the in person, day-long meeting in September - register here

On March 3, 2020 at the RPC Learning Sessio we discussed the intricacies of fetal monitoring - how we utilize it, how we interpret it and how we can improve that process.  Teams had the opportunity to network with members from hospitals of similar sizes to discuss strategies and resources to enhance the fetal monitoring process.

We are looking forward to the creation, development and then execution of our next project, a combined effort that will focus on Maternal Substance Use and Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome. This initiative will for the first time engage PQCNC in work that requires specified activities in the pre and post-partum periods. Similarly we will be planning interventions to support the care of newborns born to mothers living with substance use disorder.

Meetings for the Expert Team that will develop the AIM statement, key driver diagram and metrics for this project will begin in January 2020. Launch for this initiative will be January 2021. If you have experience, knowledge, expertise or interest in supporting the creation of such an initiative, please join us. We are calling on mothers, fathers, family members, docs, nurses, therapists, social workers, counselors, hospital and clinic leaders, addiction specialists, midwives, practitioners, public health officials, government leaders, and payers/purchasers of healthcare to consider joining us.

The only requirement for "Expert" is a willingness to read background materials we supply and commitment to joining us for perhaps one face to face meeting and 4 webinars over 6-8 months.

This is an initiative that is critically needed. We have all been touched in different ways by this growing crisis. Please join us in developing an initiative that will allow us to address how we make North Carolina the best place to give birth and be born for families living with maternal substance use disorder.
