Eating, Sleeping, Consoling for Neonatal Opioid Withdrawal (ESC-NOW): a Function-Based Assessment and Management Approach
This study enrolls babies with neonatal opioid withdrawal syndrome (NOWS). The purpose of this study is to learn about how babies with this syndrome grow and develop. This will help us learn the best way to care for babies with NOWS.
You and your baby will be in this study for up to two years and will take about 6 hours of your time overall. You will complete questionnaires online, over the phone, or in person. You will also bring your baby in for a visit where we will check how they are growing and do some play-based tests to see how your baby is developing.
The overall objective is to determine if the ESC care approach will reduce the time until infants being managed for NOWS are medically ready for discharge.
Compensation may include cash, checks, gift cards, debit cards, or incentives like gift baskets, technology items, or merchandise.
Infants born at 36 weeks gestation or greater
Managed for NOWS at Oishei Children's Hospital
