Prenatal Substance Exposure: What We Know About Infant Care and Outcomes in NYC on 4/29/20
April 29 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The number of babies who were exposed to heroin or prescription opioids during pregnancy has reached epidemic levels, but what does this really mean for the child and parents? During this presentation, we will discuss the experiences of pregnant women with substance use disorders and how a newborn’s opioid withdrawal is assessed and treated. We will also discuss infant exposure to other substances including tobacco, marijuana, illicit drugs, non-prescribed medications and prescribed psychiatric medications. Finally, we will review what is currently known about health and developmental outcomes after discharge home from the hospital. Facilitators: Dr. Dennis Hand & Dr. Neera Goyal
Registration is required for all events.
