Event Description

Target Audience:

 

This workshop is intended for interprofessional health care providers and social service providers who care for childbearing families during pregnancy and postnatal periods.

 

Description:

 

This one-day workshop provides a solid foundation of theoretical and clinical knowledge to facilitate effective care of mothers and newborns who are impacted by substance use in the perinatal period.

 

Objectives:

  • Identify prevalence rates of the most common licit and illicit substances used by women during pregnancy.
  • Summarize key risk factors associated with substance use during pregnancy and potential implications for maternal and fetal/neonatal well-being.
  • Discuss the issue of stigma surrounding addictions and explore how it serves as a significant barrier to accessing appropriate services both pre-and-post natally.
  • Review evidence-based strategies to support substance-involved families across the perinatal continuum.
  • Increase knowledge of community resources available and identify existing gaps in services.
  • Review recommendations for substance-involved women who are breastfeeding.
  • Discuss evidence-based care of the newborn at-risk for or diagnosed with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS).
  • Identify best practices in planning for safe transitions.
