RESOLUTION 12-57 NEONATAL DRUG ADDICTION

Introduced by: 8th District Medical Society

Referred to: REFERENCE COMMITTEE 4

Whereas, there is a growing national problem of drug-addicted neonates; and

Whereas, there is no coordinated program in Indiana to deal

with these infants; and

Whereas, current therapy for the neonate is costing the citizens

of Indiana millions of dollars each year; and

Whereas, exposure of the neonate to prescription narcotics/illegally obtained narcotics is associated with an increase in ADD, ADHD

and autism; therefore, be it

RESOLVED, that the ISMA form an ad hoc commission to study the problem of drug-addicted neonates and propose a solution within one year; and be it further

RESOLVED, that the ISMA help with local efforts to stem the abuse

of prescription narcotics to women of child-bearing potential.


RESOLUTION 12-58 FUNDING OF INSPECT

Introduced by: 8th District Medical Society

Referred to: REFERENCE COMMITTEE 4

Whereas, there is a growing prescription drug problem in Indiana; and

Whereas, Indiana has an exemplary prescription drug tracking program (INSPECT); and

Whereas, funding for the INSPECT program will be exhausted in 2014; therefore, be it

RESOLVED, that the ISMA support responsible legislation that will continue the INSPECT program past 2014; and be it further

RESOLVED, that the ISMA aid in identifying sources of revenue that will continue the INSPECT program so that the burden of cost will not be borne by physicians alone.
