Obstetric Care for Women with Opioid Use Disorder

Objectives

Two out of three drug overdose deaths in the United States in 2018 involved an opioid, and opioid use disorder (OUD) has been increasing among women. This unit will help you, the clinician, to care for patients with OUD. The unit covers best practices in recognition and treatment strategies for OUD during obstetric care, including medication as therapy, also known as medication assisted therapy (MAT). You will learn to leverage appropriate feedback frameworks and management considerations while providing obstetrics-related care to patients with OUD. You will learn to identify community stakeholders, resources, and indicated reporting and systems learning in the obstetric clinical setting.
