Holistic Management of the Drug Dependent Neonate

I received my Neonatal Nurse Practitioner from Georgetown University and worked full time as NNP in a level IV NICU for 23 years. Subsequently I received a Family Nurse Practitioner Degree from State University of New York Health Science Center Syracuse and then a Post Master’s Degree as a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner from University of Buffalo specializing in Reproductive Psychiatry. For me, this brought my NICU practice full circle treating the entire family. In 2013 I transitioned to academia and am currently on faculty at the Pomeroy College of Nursing at Crouse Hospital. I also spearhead programs at Crouse Hospital for maternal mental health. I have been a lecturer/educator for NANN, AWHONN, New York State Nurse Practitioner Association and a variety of other venues.

Objective 1: The learner will state three ways to increase consistency in screening and identifying neonatal withdrawal
Objective 2: The learner will describe best practice acts for holistic management of the drug dependent neonate.
Objective 3: The learner will state three strategies to use in working with families to help them cope and potentiate a shorter length of stay.

Abstract:

Over the past decade NICU’s census has grown due drug dependent neonates. Some of the maternal drug use is necessary for medical conditions however the vast majority are mothers in a treatment program receiving either methadone or suboxone. NICU’s continue to strive for consistency in screening and treating infants. This presentation will describe a best practice in both screening and treatment. Also, because it is best practice to treat the entire NICU family the presentation will offer strategies in working with this sometimes challenging population.

Objective 3: discuss the management of intrauterine infections

Canada Debbie Fraser, MN, RNC-NIC
Abstract:

Intrauterine infections can have a devastating effect of the fetus, neonate and the family of the infected infant. The impact of these infections depends on the gestation at which the infection occurs, the virulence of the organism and whether or not this is a primary or recurrent infection. This presentation will explore the organisms that have been implicated in fetal infections and will discuss the presentation and management of common intrauterine infections.

Care and Management of Infants with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome
USA Karen D’Apolito, PhD, NNP-BC, FAAN

Dr. Karen D’Apolito is a Professor and Program Director of the Neonatal Nurse Practitioner Program at the Vanderbilt University School of Nursing. She has made national and international contributions to the care of drug-exposed infants through both education and research. Dr. D’Apolito received her PhD from the University of Washington, Seattle and her Post Masters Certificate as an NNP from the University of Tennessee, Memphis. In 2011 Dr. Apolito became a Fellow in American Academy of Nursing for her work with substance exposed infants. She developed a unique inter-observer reliability program to train healthcare professionals in assessing infants for signs of withdrawal. She has published numerous articles related to the effects of intra-uterine drug exposure on neonatal abstinence and has been an invited speaker to many local, national and international conferences to speak on this topic. Dr. D’Apolito has participated in two large multi-site clinical trials associated with neonatal abstinence syndrome and she recently completed a grant received from the TN Department of Health to identify the common treatment practices of infants with NAS within the state of TN.

Objective 1: Describe the incidence of NAS in the US & potential hospital costs.
Objective 2: Identify drugs associated with NAS.
Objective 3: Describe the appropriate way to assess neonates for signs of NAS.
Objective 4: Identify pharmacologic, non-pharmacologic and caregiving strategies for managing neonates with NAS.

USA Karen D’Apolito, PhD, NNP-BC, FAAN
Abstract:

Illicit and prescription drug abuse has reached epidemic proportions in our country. As a result, we are seeing many more infants being born with signs of neonatal abstinence syndrome. This presentation will address the incidence of neonatal abstinence syndrome among infants whose mothers consumed opioids and other drugs during pregnancy. Typical screening methods, assessment of the signs of withdrawal and management strategies will be discussed. The presentation will also discuss ways in which staff nurses can increase their inter-observer reliability when assessing infants for signs of neonatal abstinence. It is essential that adequate assessments be made by all who care for these infants so pharmacologic management can be instituted when needed. When the assessment of withdrawal is accurate and appropriate pharmacologic management is implemented infants will be able to better interact with their parents, tolerate their feedings and sleep for longer periods of time.
