ACT NOW - Advancing Clinical Trials in Neonatal Opioid Withdrawal

As Part of the NIH Heal Initiative, The Advancing Clinical Trials in Neonatal Opioid Withdrawal Syndrome (ACT NOW) Program, aims to inform the clinical care of infants who are exposed to opioids in the womb by providing guidance for nurses in the NICU treating these infants. One study- Eat, Sleep, Console - focuses on the abilities of the baby. Researchers are testing if the ability to eat, sleep, or be consoled increases bonding with the mother and if it reduces time in the hospital, as well as other long-term health outcomes.
