Please join us for the 5th Annual Perinatal Substance Exposure Summit. This two half-day, virtual Summit will take place on the mornings of Friday, October 29th and Friday, November 5th from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm. This year we are expanding, giving you the opportunity to hear from both national and state leaders who work with families affected by substance use disorder. You can expect to continue to receive this education in an interdisciplinary, comprehensive approach to engage your whole team. Each day of the Summit will feature a keynote program. The first keynote will be led by Dr. Matthew Grossman and will focus on Eat, Sleep, Console - the recommended assessment and treatment model of care for newborns affected by maternal opioid use. This topic is a priority area as our state perinatal quality collaborative is rolling out the Eat, Sleep, Console method across North Carolina hospitals. The second keynote will be led by Donna F. Murray, DMSc., MS, PA-C, presenting on Using Social Determinants of Mental Health to Change the Narrative around Perinatal SUD. This presentation will be followed by a panel discussion of people with lived experiences. The panel will discuss the multiple inequities faced by patients in the perinatal substance use disorder space. This panel will focus on populations that have been historically left behind in perinatal substance use disorder care, including but not limited to persons of color, those who are judicially involved, and those who are affected by social services. In addition to these powerful topics, we will highlight trending issues including stimulant use disorders and their impact on pregnant and parenting people, as well a review of biological drug testing that you won’t want to miss! We continue to share the most up-to-date and clinically relevant information you need to know on how to deliver care to pregnant and postpartum people, infants, and families affected by substance use disorders across disciplines.
