The rate of pregnant women diagnosed with opioid use disorder (OUD) during labor and delivery in the U.S. more than quadrupled from 1999 to 2014, according to a 2018 analysis by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In Florida, the rate climbed from 0.5 per 1,000 delivery hospitalizations in 1999 to 6.6 in 2014.
This project’s purpose is to work with providers, hospitals, and other stakeholders to improve identification, clinical care and coordinated treatment/support for pregnant women with opioid use disorder and their infants.
