PSNA Webinar: Parental Opioid Abuse

Parental opioid abuse has a lasting impact on children. Nurses at the bedside and in the community play a critical role in the prevention and treatment of opioid abuse. Increasing nurse advocacy for children affected by parental opioid abuse is imperative. To prepare nurses to take on this important task, please join us in an interactive webinar presentation to learn about nursing’s role in prevention of substance abuse, prenatal and maternal care, neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS), and overall effects of parental opioid abuse on children. This webinar will be held October 25 from 3-5 pm. About the speaker: Ashlee Homer, BSN, RN, CPN / Ashlee has been a pediatric nurse for five years at Penn State Health in Hershey, PA. During her practice, she has seen an increased number of children impacted by parental substance use, including NAS. She has been searching for ways to positively impact these children beyond her acute care nursing. Nurse advocacy has become her passion as she focuses on advocating for pediatric and family health issues for some of our most vulnerable clients in Pennsylvania. Click here to register.
