Substance Use During Pregnancy: Supporting Healthy Outcomes for Women, Infants and Their Families
Drug and alcohol use during pregnancy continues to be a substantial global health and social concern. In this workshop, we will reflect on the history of how society and health care providers have viewed and treated women who use substances during pregnancy. Using the perspectives of trauma informed care, harm reduction and health equity, we will explore recent developments in perinatal and neonatal evidence-informed practice in the care of women and infants. Exemplars of innovative community and hospital programs will be shared.
