The nurse can be a tremendous asset to the Child Welfare / SUD Team. Nurses can help with the development and implementation of the Plan of Safe Care that is done in collaboration with the caregiver and child protective services when a child is born affected by substance abuse.
The nurse can also do assessments outside of court or with those not engaged in services to get them into detox, or inpatient/residential treatment. The nurse can help people get health insurance and referrals to Primary Care Physicians and Specialists. The nurse can sign off on the Taking Care of Me Milestones which is focused on participant’s health, dental and spiritual needs.
This session will focus on the role of the nurse, how the coordinator on the FTC team works with nurses, the benefits of nurses through the lens of the attorney and how nurses can be funded using Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA) grants.
