Maternal Child Health ECHO

The Maternal Child Health and Opioid Use Disorder (MCH OUD) ECHO seeks to address care management for some of the special populations affected by substance use throughout New Jersey. This program will give an overview of evidence-informed tools to care for pregnant women with substance use disorders and their newborns to obstetric, pediatric, family medicine, and addiction medicine providers in a community or hospital setting.

At the end of this program, participants should have a clear understanding of current evidence-informed guidelines for care for mothers and their newborns. The program will identify strategies, best practices, resources, and emerging topics in this field.
