Project Goal


The PRIMA (Pregnancy-Related Issues in the Management of Addictions) project is designed to assist Canadian health care professionals (particularly family physicians, obstetricians, midwives, nurse practitioners and nurses) to provide care for pregnant and postpartum women with problematic substance use. This website is intended to be both an information source and a portal to other resources.

We strive to provide accurate and up-to-date information, and our collaborative review process encourages the accuracy and completeness of this site. However, typographical errors and outdated information are unavoidable in a project this size. The user of this site assumes complete responsibility in applying any management strategies documented on this website. Please exercise your own clinical judgment when implementing any management strategies. It is advisable to confirm details, such as medication dosages or laboratory normal values, with other sources.

PRIMA experts periodically review all adddictionpregnancy.ca content. All information produced is date stamped with the latest revision date.

Although access to this site is not restricted, this site was not intended for patients, and the information provided on addictionpregnancy.ca is not meant to replace the patient-physician relationship.

This website was funded by an unrestricted educational grant from the Lawson Foundation. To ensure integrity of the information provided, this site does not receive any funding or support through advertising, and only accepts financial support through unrestricted educational grants.
