Abstract Objective We sought to (1) identify models of integrated care that offer medical care and social services for children and families impacted by opioid use disorder (OUD) in the postpartum year; and (2) describe how each program was developed, designed, and sustained, and explore facilitators and barriers to implementation of a dyadic, two-generation approach to care. Methods In-depth semi-structured interviews (n=23) were conducted with programs for women and children affected by OUD ac...

BACKGROUND Chronic pain and heavy drinking are conditions that commonly co-occur among primary care patients. Despite the availability of behavioral interventions that target these conditions individually, engagement and adherence to treatment remain a challenge, and there have been no interventions designed to address both of these conditions together for patients presenting to primary care. This study seeks to incorporate the perspectives of patients regarding symptoms, treatment experiences, ...

Abstract Background Many pregnant people find no bridge to ongoing specialty or primary care after delivery, even when clinical and social complications of pregnancy signal need. Black, indigenous and all other women of color are especially harmed by fragmented care and access disparities, coupled with impacts of racism over the life course and in health care. Methods We launched the initiative “Bridging the Chasm between Pregnancy and Health across the Life Course” in 2018, bringing together pa...

Background COVID-19 exposes major gaps in the MCH safety net and illuminates the disproportionate consequences borne by people living in low resource communities where systemic racism, community disinvestment, and social marginalization creates a perfect storm of vulnerability. Methods We draw eight lessons from the first 8 months of the pandemic, describing how COVID-19 has intensified pre-existing gaps in the MCH support network and created new problems. For each lesson identified, we present ...

INTRODUCTION Women with gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) have a marked increased risk of early onset type 2 diabetes, but less than half initiate postpartum glucose testing or connect with a primary care provider for continued follow-up after giving birth. This study analyzed women's narratives about their GDM-affected pregnancies to (1) identify different patterns (narrative archetypes) that capture the GDM experience; (2) explore how these patterns relate to awareness of ongoing risk after ...

ABSTRACTBackground: Unhealthy alcohol use (UAU) is common among people who use other drugs; however, little information is available about UAU among patients who screen positive for drugs in primary care, where the clinical priority might be assumed to be drug use. This study aimed at describing the occurrence of UAU and its association with substance use–related outcomes in such patients. Methods: This cohort study is a secondary analysis of data from a randomized trial of brief intervention fo...

ABSTRACTIn this study, we investigate the role of gender in prevalence and consequences of binge drinking and brief intervention outcomes among Mexican-origin young adults aged 18–30 years at the U.S.-Mexico border. We conducted a secondary analysis, stratified by gender, from a randomized controlled trial of a brief motivational intervention in a hospital emergency department. Intervention effects for males included reductions in drinking frequency, binge drinking, and alcohol-related consequen...

Abstract Drug use is associated with increased sexual risk behaviors. We examined whether decreases in drug use risk are associated with reduction in HIV-related sex risk behaviors among adults. Data was from a cohort of participants (n = 574) identified by drug use screening in a randomized trial of brief intervention for drug use in an urban primary care setting. Inverse probability of treatment weighted (IPTW) logistic regression models were used to examine the relationship between decreases ...
