Substance use in pregnancy is a devastating societal problem affecting the health and wellbeing of mothers, infants and the communities in which they live.  This multidisciplinary and community training will provide an opportunity for those in the Parkersburg area to learn more about this problem.  Obstetrical and pediatric healthcare providers as well as community members caring for infants affected by substance use are encouraged to attend.  Experts in the field of neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS) will discuss screening, identification, diagnosis, therapeutic handling and treatment of newborns who have intrauterine substance exposure.  Different tracks will be offered – one targeted to healthcare professionals and the other to community members caring for these babies in the home.

Targeted Audience

Healthcare providers:  Ob-Gyns, pediatricians, family practice physicians, advanced practice providers, nurses, and social workers.
Community Members:  Home visitation programs, daycare providers, and foster care families.
