Death and disability resulting from the use of prescription and street opioids has skyrocketed in the past 20 years, and emergency departments have seen a sharp escalation in visits related to opioid use disorder (OUD), opioid overdose, and chronic pain.
This webinar will describe the principles around the prevention, identification, and treatment of patients with OUD, with an emphasis on the first-line therapy buprenorphine, which protects OUD patients from withdrawal, cravings and overdose, and is effectively initiated from the ED.
