What You Need to Know to Start Treatment Today

This training, developed by the Michigan Opioid Partnership and CA Bridge, focuses on the data supporting medication for opioid use disorder (MOUD), pharmacology, and the steps required to start someone on buprenorphine. Presenters Andy King, MD; Arianna Campbell, PA-C; and Nick Rademacher, MD will highlight how using buprenorphine to treat opioid use disorder is both safe and highly effective, and efforts to increase access to this highly effective therapy. By the end of the training, participants will be ready to apply for their X-waiver and provide buprenorphine on their next shift. All emergency department (ED) clinicians will find this module helpful as a review of MOUD pharmacology and the principles of ED-based treatment.

 

At the conclusion of this training, learners should be able to:
✓ Define opioid use disorder as a medical and public health emergency
✓ Explain that medications are the most effective treatment for opioid use disorder
✓ Recall the pharmacology of Buprenorphine, Methadone, & Naltrexone

Building Your System for Today & Tomorrow

Despite its high morbidity and mortality, opioid use disorder (OUD) is inadequately treated with evidence-based medicine. Medication for opioid use disorder (MOUD) programs must be established in emergency departments (ED) for the maximum number of patients to be provided this highly effective therapy. However, due to long standing stigma associated with OUD, developing treatment programs can be a challenge without buy-in from every level of the hospital.

 

In this training, we will focus on patient-centered strategies to incorporate MOUD into your ED. Tips and tricks will be shared by clinical experts that have developed programs in their hospitals, throughout Michigan and California. By the end of this training, you should be equipped to build a patient-centered, evidence-based treatment program that will become part of your local culture.

 

At the conclusion of this training, learners should be able to:
✓ Build an emergency department medication for opioid use disorder team
✓ Identify and recommend a clinical champion
✓ Assess and set up a network of community partners
✓ Evaluate and develop partners within the hospital
✓ Design a program that is clinician friendly

Emergency Department Medication for Opioid Use Disorder: FAQs

Using buprenorphine in the emergency department (ED) to treat opioid use disorder (OUD) is both safe and highly effective, yet it remains underutilized and difficult to access. In the ED, medication for opioid use disorder (MOUD) is still a novel treatment method. Thus, comfort and familiarity with MOUD needs to be established to increase adoption.

 

In this training, we will review and address the questions and concerns that we hear most frequently. We will answer basic “how to” questions, address hesitancy, discuss the role of stigma, and more. Throughout the session, we will provide tips and tricks to win over the hearts and minds of your colleagues, leadership, and patients.

 

At the conclusion of this training, learners should be able to:
✓ Explain that medications are the most effective treatment for opioid use disorder
✓ Recall common questions and concerns
✓ Compose evidence-based responses to frequently asked questions and concerns
✓ Recognize questions and hesitancy rooted in stigma
✓ Support an inclusive, welcoming environment for patients with opioid use disorder
