    • Plans of Safe Care—What your Multidisciplinary Team Needs to Know
      Plans of Safe Care—What your Multidisciplinary Team Needs to Know

      In 2016, Section 503 of the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA) modified sections of the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA) related to infants with prenatal substance exposure and Plans of Safe Care. The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) has provided related guidance in two Program Instructions (PI 17-02 and PI 17-05) and one Information Memorandum (IM 16-05). Key elements of the ACF related guidance include where states have flexibility; confirms that “the development of a plan of safe care is required whether or not the circumstances constitute child maltreatment under state law;” clarifies that CAPTA does not specifically define a ‘plan of safe care,’ encourages collaborative planning and implementation of services.

      This webinar provides multidisciplinary teams with a shared understanding of the challenges facing infants and families affected by substance use disorders (SUD), identifies how diverse partners can contribute to a collaboration that supports the complex needs of these families and highlights resources that teams can use to support implementation of a collaborative approach to Plans of Safe Care for pregnant and parenting women with SUD, infants with prenatal substance exposure and their families.
