Health Justice: Supporting Patients with Unmet Legal Needs

Apr 01, 2022  10:00 AM  EST

The interdisciplinary Nursing-Legal Partnership (NLP) program of the National Nurse Led Care Consortium embeds legal aid into home visiting services with the goal of improving health outcomes for at-risk pregnant and parenting people. By addressing social determinants of health and policy issues, the NLP also works to remove systemic barriers to vital health and social services.

In this 3-part series, center and hospital-based providers will expand their understanding of how unmet legal needs impact the health and well-being of vulnerable families, particularly during the pregnancy, labor, childbirth and parenting period. Through case studies, providers will increase their ability to recognize how unmet legal needs present in clinical settings as well as identify strategies to better address patients' unmet needs, with or without access to a medical-legal partnership program.

Registration is now closed.
