Description

The recent trend in infants born exposed to neurotropic substances during pregnancy is increasing at an alarming rate across the United States, posing a public health threat in the form of neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS). Jodi Jackson, MD, Children’s Mercy Neonatologist and Medical Director of the Shawnee Mission Medical Center (SMMC) level III NICU, has implemented family-centered care initiatives that have improved outcomes for these infants.

This family-centered protocol for NAS has been implemented at the other community hospitals where Children’s Mercy neonatologists serve as medical directors, and now Dr. Jackson is chair of the Kansas perinatal quality collaborative (KPQC) and working on a state wide initiative for NAS.

Hear from Dr. Jackson as she discusses the program and impact it is having on the neonatal population.
