Emergency Medicine Management of Opioid Use Disorder

Navigating the Landscape Outside the Emergency Department (92452)

Session originally hosted August 2022

After a patient is administered or prescribed medication for opioid use disorder (MOUD) in the emergency department (ED), they must be admitted inpatient, referred to outpatient treatment, and/or connected to community resources. However, navigating these landscapes and locating relevant resources can be the most challenging part of establishing an ED MOUD program.

In this training, we will discuss ways to utilize and connect with all available resources outside of the emergency department. We will look at methods for inpatient integration and provide strategies to incorporate warm handoffs into your ED MOUD program. We will review and evaluate community-based options, including harm reduction strategies, support groups, “detox” programs, methadone clinics, and outpatient providers. Throughout the session, we will discuss how to optimize follow up and pitfalls to avoid.

At the conclusion of this training, learners should be able to:
✓ Support inpatient integration of critical ED MOUD care processes
✓ Define harm reduction and syringe service program
✓ Explain why long-term, medication-based treatment is most effective
✓ Locate and evaluate various community-based care options, including harm reduction and treatment options
✓ Formulate a plan if unable to secure outpatient treatment for a patient
