Webinar: Caring for Pregnant and Parenting Women with OUD During the COVID-19 Pandemic

April 17, 2020

Thank you to all those who have joined us in previous webinars in our ongoing series “FORE’s COVID-19 National Emergency Response: Maintaining Access to MOUD.”

In our previous webinars, we have focused on the federal and state emergency regulatory changes facilitating greater use of telemedicine, how hospitals and clinicians are implementing telemedicine in compliance with new temporary regulatory requirements, and how to create a clinical telehealth environment to keep patients engaged in care. This week, we will focus on what is needed to continue to effectively care for pregnant and parenting women with OUD during the pandemic.

Please join us as we welcome Hendrée Jones, PhD, Professor and Executive Director at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Horizons Program, Maridee Shogren, DNP, CNM, Clinical Associate Professor of Nursing at the University of North Dakota, and Mishka Terplan, MD, MPH, Senior Physician Research Scientist at Friends Research Institute, on Thursday, April 23 at 3pm EST, to lead a discussion on the unique challenges and concerns for keeping women with OUD safe and in care through pregnancy and the postpartum period in the midst of the COVID-19 national emergency. An open Q&A session will follow the presentation.

We continue to invite you to look at our Resources page for the most up-to-date information and guidance. You can view a recording of our previous webinars below. As always, please reach out with questions and/or resources that you believe would benefits others.
