Grants and Contracts Details
UK PATHways would like to expand their services and the access to FDA-approved medications for Opioid Use Disorder (MOUD) for pregnant and parenting women by creating a specialized track of group prenatal care for mothers that have co-occurring mental illness and opioid use disorder that will be supported by a psychiatric nurse practitioner obstetrics providers that are waivered prescribers of buprenorphine. UK PATHways has, historically, been successful in engaging women with co-occurring mental health issues and substance use disorders by creating an individualized approach to their care. However, a standard clinic day within the PATHways program consists of a prenatal education group, a recovery group, a visit with the obstetrics provider, and interactions with various staff: therapist, peer support and research nurses. Consequently, this has been challenging for some patients that have more severe mental illnesses. They struggle due to being in a clinic setting for 3-4 hours. We aim to have a practitioner provide added support at unique times potentially working with residential facilities to meet patients where they live.
