Opioid Use & Dependence
in Pregnancy


We find ourselves taking care of an increasing number of pregnant patients with opioid use and dependence in our practices and on Labor & Delivery.


We have gathered a group of regional/national experts to review this topic in detail and create protocols to understand ‘best practices’ for care.


This full-day conference on March 11, 2015 is really a “must attend” event for those of us doing obstetrics in 2015.
