THE UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH DAKOTA
This administrative supplement is designed to expand participant recruitment at the Rapid City one of the study locations in the Northern Plains Comprehensive Clinical Site of the Safe Passage Study. The Prenatal Alcohol in SIDS and Stillbirth (PASS) Network is a community-based cooperative agreement with the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) and the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) that involves two Comprehensive Clinical Sites located in Cape Town, South Africa and the Northern Plains, US, a Physiology Assessment Core (PAC), a Developmental Biology and Pathology Center (DBPC) and a Data Coordinating and Analysis Center (DCAC). The Rapid City site expansion will occur through the addition of a prenatal clinic and other programs that serve pregnant women, particularly those considered high-risk for an alcohol exposed pregnancy. An additional 100 participants will be annual recruited from these additional resources to supplement Rapid City's current recruitment numbers. This Rapid City site expansion allows for the creation of 2.0 FTE new hires. Over the two years of this supplement funding, we estimate an increase in infant mortality case ascertainment of one to six infant deaths. For stillbirth, this expansion will result in an estimated three additional stillbirth deliveries.
