Overview

Substance use in the perinatal period is a common and highly stigmatized public health issue.  Though substance use in this period poses known risks for both mother and child, there are significant barriers that make it difficult for this population to seek out and access the care they need.  This presentation will summarize what we know about perinatal substance use and the unique needs of this population, as well as explain current research in home visitation settings that seeks to overcome some of these barriers to care.

Learning Objectives

1. List the risk & protective factors for substance use that are unique to pregnant and postpartum women
2. Describe the special considerations that must be taken when working with perinatal women, as well as the barriers that exist for women in this population seeking care
3. Explain the benefits of home visiting programs and why they are an innovative setting for substance use prevention
