For women who become pregnant, substance abuse is associated with

poor birth outcomes, maternal death, and childhood developmental

problems that can be long-lasting

Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) in pregnancy and early parenting increases the risk of poor maternal and perinatal outcomes for mother, child and family. Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) nurses have identified an increase in their patients experience with OUD. This ECHO series for NFP nurses will expand on the OUD modules provided by the NFP National Service Office. Participants can expect to increase their knowledge of the impact of OUD on mothers and children, identify tools best suited to care for mothers and apply the collaborative care team skills to meet mother's needs.
