Pregnancy and Lactation Medication Information for the Healthcare Provider

At the doctor stock

On May 11th, 2022, the Office of Women’s Health hosted a webinar in collaboration with CDER’s Division of Pediatrics and Maternal Health titled: Pregnancy and Lactation Medication Information for the Healthcare Provider.

This webinar discussed the FDA’s current pregnancy and lactation labeling system, also known as the Pregnancy and Lactation Labeling Rule (PLLR), which replaced a previous approach that used letter categories. This webinar covered lessons learned and feedback received from healthcare providers about the current system and will help learners examine how prescription drug labeling can be used to inform prescribing in pregnant and lactating individuals.
