In this webinar, presenters Dr Alys Havard and Dr Danielle Tran from the National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre (NDARC) will describe their current program of research.

They have been examining the use, safety and effectiveness of prescription varenicline, nicotine replacement therapy and bupropion during pregnancy. These research questions will be addressed with population-based cohort studies using linked data from Australia, New Zealand, Norway and Sweden. Findings regarding the risk of congenital malformations in babies exposed to these pharmacotherapies during gestation will be presented.
