Introduction: Infants diagnosed with neonatal abstinence syndrome [NAS] or neonatal opioid withdrawal syndrome [NOWS] is a growing population in Canada. In most facilities, an outdated model of care is used to guide the care and assessment of babies diagnosed with NAS. Challenges with this outdated model have prompted the transition to a novel approach to care. Despite this promising intervention to improve patient and health system outcomes, little is known on how to effectively implement and evaluate the model in clinical practice. Objectives: We will conduct a scoping review to address the question, “How has the ESC model been implemented and evaluated in practice?”. Methods: We will follow the Joanna Briggs Institute Methodology for Scoping Reviews and Arksey and O’Malley’s scoping review framework. Reporting will follow the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analysis extension for scoping reviews. Published and unpublished literature will be included in the review. The following databases and grey literature will be searched: MEDLINE, Embase, CINAHL, PsycINFO, Google Scholar, and websites identified in a google website search. Two independent reviewers will screen, and extract data based on pre-determined eligibility criteria and data extraction tools. We will narratively describe quantitative data, along with completing an inductive thematic analysis of qualitative findings. Furthermore, we will conduct a directed content analysis of qualitative findings using the COM-B Model of Behaviour and RE-AIM (Reach, Effectiveness, Adoption, Implementation and Maintenance) Framework. We anticipate findings will be used to support future implementation and evaluation of the ESC model into clinical practice.
