Join us for a presentation on useful approaches to prevent opioid morbidity and mortality in your healthcare system. Strategies discussed will include how to reduce morphine milligram equivalents (MMEs) prescribed at hospital discharge, how to screen for patients at highest risk of developing an opioid-related adverse drug event (ORADE) or opioid use disorder (OUD), implementation of a take-home naloxone program, and buprenorphine induction and transition to outpatient treatment. A bonus topic at the end will introduce the concept of health equity in the opioid epidemic and what your hospital and clinics can be doing to decrease health disparities in this area.
