In this one-hour webinar, Aimee Moulin, MD, frames opioid use disorder (OUD) as a medical emergency and highlights the role emergency departments and other health care providers can play in helping patients start treatment for OUD. Dr. Aimee Moulin is an Emergency Physician and Assistant Residency Director at UC Davis, recent past president of Cal ACEP, and Co-Director of Emergency Department Services for the California Bridge Program. Strategies for connecting emergency services with ongoing community based-care will be discussed.
Why is this webinar important? While recent CDC data indicate the nationwide overdose death rate has started to decrease, California’s overdose death rate continues to climb. Opioid use itself can be lethal, especially with the increased mix of fentanyl, methamphetamine and other drugs. Life-saving treatments for OUD are highly underutilized throughout the treatment system. Physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician’s assistants have a crucial role to play in saving lives through participation in a more integrated network of care.
