Handouts and Follow-up Document


In 2015 there were a number of legislative changes affecting child welfare practice in North Carolina. Two of the most significant relate to concurrent planning and the way medical decisions are made for children in foster care. In this webinar we answer questions about these changes and explore what they mean for child welfare professionals, their agencies, and families and children. (Event Date: 2/11/2016)
