Caring for Opioid-Exposed Dyads: Child Welfare, Breastfeeding Policies and Zero Separation
Recorded: Thursday, April 22, 2021 - Saturday, April 24, 2021
This 1.5-hour on-demand session from ASAM Virtual 2021 addresses the opportunities for growth in supporting comprehensive care for vulnerable birthing parents, newborns and families impacted by opioid use disorder as discrimination, racial inequities, socio-economic disparities and marginalization lead to isolation, under-treatment and compromised outcomes.
The opioid crisis in the midst of challenging COVID times has outlined opportunities for growth in supporting comprehensive care for vulnerable birthing parents, newborns and families impacted by opioid use disorder. Discrimination, racial inequities, socio-economic disparities and marginalization lead to isolation, under-treatment and compromised outcomes. Changes to the federal CAPTA law mandate that healthcare providers involved in the delivery or care of opioid-exposed infants notify the child protective services system and receive a plan of safe care. Practices vary widely and the responses of various systems to the needs of opioid-exposed dyads diverge, resulting in apparent conflicts among treatment practices, medical recommendations, and the policies and oversight provided by courts and child welfare services.
The target audience for this introductory level session includes physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, other clinicians, researchers, residents, fellows, students, and counselors.
This session addresses the following ACGME Competencies: Patient Care, Interpersonal Skills, Systems Based Practice.
Upon completion, learners will be able to:
- Improve their medical knowledge about OUD, equity and child welfare, and understand how bias, discrimination and policies worsen both social disparities and maternal/family outcomes
- Identify models of care, evolving science and clinical practices relevant to the opioid-exposed dyad, breastfeeding and toxicology policies, COMPASSION and “zero separation”
- Increase awareness of policies and practices of child welfare, breastfeeding and “no wrong door” services to improve evidence-based approaches for the opioid-exposed dyad and the community.
