Perinatal opioid use is a serious public health challenge in the United States which, if untreated, is associated with morbidity and mortality for both mothers and their infants. Maternity care providers are uniquely positioned to assist by facilitating access to treatment and comprehensive care. What does research tell us about optimal screening approaches for prenatal substance use? What kinds of treatment programs are available for pregnant women who struggle with opioid use disorders? Which resources should be provided prenatally to promote the safety of mother and baby? Listen to this webinar to learn more.


The goal of this presentation is to discuss implications of prenatal and perinatal opioid use, treatment, and resources needed to optimize care. Upon completion of the webinar, learners will be able to:
  • Describe treatment options for pregnant women who struggle with opioid use disorders
  • List screening approaches for opioid use disorders
  • Identify resources needed to promote safety of mother and baby
  • Assess how the healthcare team can work together to improve communication around substance use issues

it is not at all pertinent to the practice of ophthalmology. while it is important for all doctors to be aware of these issues, perhaps a more general approach to opioid education/management would have more workplace utility
