An interdisciplinary team from the University of Maryland schools of pharmacy, medicine, nursing, social work, and law will host two brown bag seminars to advance the Interdisciplinary Education Awareness for Maternal Opioid Use Disorder (IDEA for MOUD) campaign.
Participants will learn through an interactive session of case presentations and patient stories. The objective of the educational series is to promote a collaborative approach to addressing challenges in managing patients with maternal opioid use disorder.
Registration is offered at no cost thanks to funding from the University of Maryland, Baltimore Center for Interprofessional Education.

Interdisciplinary Care Models to Address the Stigma of Opioid Use Disorder in Pregnancy
Monday, Feb. 24, 2020
1 to 2 p.m.

Stigma has been identified as a patient-specific barrier to treatment. Stigma from health care providers can result in treatment delays and lack of adherence and program retention.
Presenters aim to improve understanding of perceived stigma and to identify interdisciplinary strategies for managing patients with maternal opioid use disorder.
