The authors present a new approach for evaluation and counseling of teratogenic risk, The Molherisk program in Toronto presently deals with 60 inquiries per day from the public and health professionals.
Most calls are answered through the telephone, and 16-20 women per week are scheduled for our clinic following exposure to known or suspected teratogens, to new drugs with sparse information, to chronic drug therapy, or drugs of abuse.
Also seen in clinic are women who want to be counseled or whose physicians want them to meet us due to high levels of anxiety.
