National Conference to Explore Advances in Safe and Effective Prescribing for Pregnant Women
November 1, 2018 - November 2, 2018
Major academic centers co-sponsor presentations by leading researchers
The lack of data to support prescribing medications for pregnant women safely and effectively has resulted in these women being relegated to “pharmaceutical orphans.” New discoveries and innovations in obstetric pharmacology will be highlighted November 1-2, 2018 during “Obstetric-Fetal Pharmacology: Practical Prescribing and Research Methods Update,” a conference for researchers and clinicians to be held at Northwestern University in downtowns Chicago. Organized the NICHD’s Obstetric-Fetal Pharmacology Research Centers (Northwestern University, the University of Pittsburgh and the University of Texas Medical Branch), the program will provide new data from internationally recognized experts on pharmacological issues related to pregnancy – ranging from efficacy and safety of drugs to trends in drug development and regulation. It is approved for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ for physicians and contact hours for nurses.
