In the setting of the national opioid epidemic, the Section on Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine’s TECaN Group (Trainees and Early Career Neonatologists) is engaging in a national effort to empower and educate providers about Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome.
The #NavigatingNAS Campaign will feature four quarters, each devoted to a different aspect of the continuum of neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS). Each quarter will provide educational materials for clinical practice and resources for families in addition to webinars, podcasts, and social media outreach.
