California Perinatal Quality Care Collaborative (CPQCC) Building A Statewide Family Advisory Council for Neonatal Intensive Care Units
Family Advisory Council (FACs) work with neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) and High Risk Infant Follow-up clinics to facilitate family participation in research, quality improvement initiatives, parent outreach and support, communications, and other projects, but two-thirds of NICUs in California do not have a FAC. The California Perinatal Quality Care Collaborative (CPQCC) will create a statewide FAC that represents California’s diversity. Through establishing channels for family feedback and engagement with CPQCC leadership, the project aims to shape systems of care within NICUs to improve infant outcomes, particularly for marginalized populations over the long term.
