Today’s Public Health Crisis: Managing Opioid Substance Use Disorder in Women’s Health Curriculum

Round Table Text:
Opioid substance use disorder is a major public health crisis today affecting our OBGYN
patients. The LCME encourages teaching this longitudinal theme. We’ve created curriculum
for students to explore issues related to substance abuse in the special populations of women,
pregnancy, and neonates. We teach using multi-disciplinary faculty (MFM, Neonatology,
Psychiatry, Addiction Medicine). Students learn to evaluate and identify: risks and screening
methods for substance abuse disorders in women and pregnancy, treatment options and their
risks/ benefits, options for acute pain management for patients during labor and delivery, and
signs of withdrawal and overdose and management in pregnancy.
