Calling all Nurses!

On behalf of the new Virginia Neonatal Perinatal Collaborative (VNPC), I am extending an invitation to all Virginia RNís and NPís to join a quality improvement collaborative that is being formed to ensure that every mother has the best possible perinatal care and every infant born in Virginia has the best possible start to life. Our mission statement includes utilizing evidence-based, data-driven collaborative process that involves care providers for women and infants as well as state and local leaders who will work together to create a stronger and healthier Virginia.  Based on the success of other state perinatal collaboratives, we believe that it is time for Virginia to form our own team to improve the care of infants and pregnant women in the Commonwealth.

Please use this email link to let us know of your interest (or one of your colleagues) in participating in the VNPC and we can place you on the distribution list and include you in the collaborative.
