Treating maternal opioid use disorder (MOUD) in pregnant women requires integration of provider, patient, and health system needs and fostering collaboration among intersecting disciplines for comprehensive management of pregnant and parenting women, often beyond the skillset of any one healthcare provider.

This one-day workshop was hosted by an interdisciplinary team from the University of Maryland, schools of Pharmacy, Medicine, Nursing, Social Work, and Law.

The workshop:

  • taught integrative and interdisciplinary approaches for the evidence-based care of pregnant and parenting women with OUD
  • provided participants opportunities to learn through interactive teaching strategies, case studies, spotlight presentations, and patient stories.

The workshop is a project of the Interdisciplinary Education Awareness for Maternal Opioid Use Disorder (IDEA for MOUD) campaign that aims to provide a forum for interdisciplinary cross-sector learning and sharing of best practices and strategies for managing MOUD among pregnant women.
