This Maternity and Neonatal Learning System event focused on smoking in pregnancy.

The second event on this topic will be used to create a mini-collaborative within our local learning system to drive improvement in smoking rates across the North West Coast.

Smoking in pregnancy is one of the NHSI “big five” change packages and so this event will provide the opportunity to understand some of the key contributory factors to reducing these smoking rates. As part of the mini-collaborative there will be opportunities for additional members of your team to learn more about Quality Improvement, and work with Public Health colleagues to address some of the key barriers to support women and families to stop smoking.
