Plan of Care Expert Video Series

The National Center on Substance Abuse and Child Welfare (NCSACW), with support from the Vermont Oxford Network (VON) developed a four-part series on implementing Plans of Safe Care and Family Care Plans that promote safety and well-being for pregnant people, infants, and their families affected by prenatal substance exposure.

The four modules expand on the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act as it relates to infants affected by prenatal substance exposure, determining who needs a Plan of Safe Care and how notifications differ from child protection services reports, collaborating with community partners to implement Plans of Safe Care, and developing and using the Plan of Safe Care as a care coordination process from pregnancy to birth and infancy. Each module contains subject matter content, on the ground examples, and questions health care providers can ask collaborative teams engaged in this work.
