Women's health-related scientific findings presented by University of Pittsburgh researchers
Date:3/27/2008

far more comfortable discussing smoking cessation than they are alcohol or illegal drug use during pregnancy. For the study, Judy C. Chang, M.D., M.P.H., assistant professor of obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive sciences at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, and colleagues analyzed audiotapes of 51 prenatal visits to 29 physicians, midwives and nurse practitioners.

While all providers asked their patients about their use of tobacco, alcohol and illegal drugs, discussion was more thorough concerning the adverse effects of smoking and related resources for smoking cessation compared to other risk factors. Provider responses to alcohol or drug disclosures included only general statements regarding effects on pregnancy, such as We find this is bad for babies, said Dr. Chang, who also is an MWRI investigator. Few alcohol or drug discussions assessed whether the patient had concerns regarding continued use during the pregnancy, or strategies for behavioral change.

Providers who talked about alcohol and drug use tended to refer their substance-using patients to genetics specialists for further evaluation rather than confront the issue more directly. In follow-up interviews, however, patients said they expected to be asked about substance use, and voiced a need for more information on possible fetal effects.

In addition to Dr. Chang, other authors include Diane Dado, M.S.W., Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC; Robert Arnold, M.D., University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine; and Richard Frankel, Ph.D., Indiana University School of Medicine.

This is Abstract No. 407. Dr. Chang is discussing this work as part of a presentation, Health Services Research in Womens Health: The Science of Caring for Patients, at 1:30 p.m., PDT, March 27. Dr. Chang also is presenting a poster at 9 a.m., PDT, March 28.
