Purpose: As you are aware Smoking in Pregnancy remains the main modifiable risk factor for a range of poor pregnancy outcomes, this is a national priority.  The proportion of women who smoke at time of delivery is significantly higher across the North of England compared to the England average. 

In order to improve and develop local action to reduce smoking at time of delivery and the use of tobacco during pregnancy the Cheshire and Merseyside Local Maternity System has instigated a review of current work which involves a Smoking in Pregnancy workshop.  

Participants:

Heads of Midwifery; Stop Smoking Services, CCG commissioners; Local Authority/Public Health Commissioners/Tobacco Leads and Family Nurse Partnership

 Aims:

The workshop will provide you with opportunities to:

  1. Review your local pathway for smoking in pregnancy, identifying what is working well and the challenges.
  2. Identify the enablers to address current challenges at local, regional and national level
  3. Learn from examples and experiences in other areas
  4. Co-create a SMART action plan that will implement the recommendations within each locality to improve service pathwa

 

Presentations from the event are available here
