Team HOPE is an interdisciplinary team from the Vanderbilt University Medical Center and the Monroe Carrell Jr. Children’s Hospital that seeks to provide evidence-based care for opioid-exposed infants. The team is comprised of physicians, nurses, social workers, child life specialists, lactation consultants, and care providers from the Department of Pediatrics Divisions of General Pediatrics, Hospital Medicine, and Neonatology along with the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
Team HOPE strives to improve the care of the opioid-exposed mother-baby dyad through a multifaceted, family-centered approach. The team seeks to keep moms and babies together after birth, and move the dyad out of an intensive care setting when possible.
