The national rate of opioid use disorder among women in the perinatal period is increasing rapidly, while about 1 in 20 women report using marijuana while pregnant.

• Discuss what addiction is—and what it is not
• Review epidemiology of substance use in pregnancy
• Discuss screening approaches and tools
• Compare treatment approaches, including MAT (Medication Assisted Treatment), for pregnant and breastfeeding women with opiate use disorder

Group Pre and Postnatal Care: The Centering Model: Theory, Practice and Implementation Perspectives

Duration: 
1 hr

Presented by:
Deborah A. McNeil
Wednesday, October 24, 2018
12:00 - 1:00 p.m.
Location
By webinar only
Register here: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/pho-seminar-group-pre-and-postnatal-care-the...
Intended Audience
Public health professionals and those working in health promotion with a focus on maternal child health.
Note
This is an open invitation, and may be forwarded to interested parties
About the presentation:
Group pre and postnatal care is a social model of care originating in the United States that has spread internationally. The Centering Health Care Institute has championed the model and fostered its spread. Health care, assessment and support is provided in a facilitated group setting. Facilitation is provided by professionals using an egalitarian (rather than expert) knowledge-holder approach. An association between Centering Pregnancy with reduced preterm birth and low birth weight in socially at-risk women, as well as increased maternal knowledge and satisfaction, has been demonstrated in several studies. Increased breastfeeding initiation and duration has also been found. Mothers described feeling empowered and supported. Physicians described providing richer care and learning more about the women in their care in order to better support their needs. Implementing a substantially different model of care alongside standard care presents unique challenges and opportunities that impact work load processes and values.

As a current example of reorienting health systems, participants will understand the theory, practice and implementation perspectives associated with centering health care models for this population.
About the presenter: Deborah A. McNeil
Deborah A. McNeil is currently the Scientific Director of the Maternal Newborn Child and Youth Strategic Clinical Network and Adjunct Associate Professor, University of Calgary Faculty of Nursing and Cumming School of Medicine. Following a 25-year clinical career, Deborah has held research positions in maternal child health and population public and Indigenous health for the past 17 years. Deborah’s current research focus includes perinatal depression and anxiety, measuring health inequities, childhood immunization, and group pre and postnatal care.

Young Children in Refugee Families and Early Childhood Programs: Ways to Mitigate the Effects of Trauma

Speakers:
J. Lawrence Aber, Willner Family Professor in Psychology and Public Policy and University Professor, New York University
Heather Savazzi, Content Development Team Lead, CMAS (Supporting the Care and Settlement of Young Immigrant and Refugee Children in Canada)

Moderator: Maki Park, Senior Policy Analyst, MPI

Young children in refugee families often endure significant direct or indirect trauma from their experiences during conflict, flight, or resettlement. Extensive research demonstrates that trauma can seriously impact the brain, cognitive, and socioemotional development of young children, potentially interfering with their learning capacity and ability to form healthy attachments. The issue of trauma has therefore gained increasing visibility across the early childhood field, yet relatively little research has explored the specific traumatic experiences and needs of young refugee children or strategies to address them.

High-quality early childhood education and care (ECEC) programs can have enormous benefits, particularly for the children of immigrants and refugees. ECEC programs also present an important opportunity to provide trauma-informed services in a nonclinical setting, significantly expanding access to important socioemotional and mental health supports for this vulnerable population. However, Migration Policy Institute research shows that many U.S. ECEC programs and systems lack the capacity and knowledge to take a trauma-informed approach in their services.

Join this webinar where experts will discuss the effects of trauma on the development of young refugee children. They will also highlight ways ECEC programs can address this trauma, including practical strategies that child-care providers in Canada are using to support the resiliency of refugee children and families. This webinar is the first of two discussions that MPI will be hosting on the issue of trauma-informed care for young children of refugees in early childhood programs. The second webinar will be held on September 13.
