Management of OUD in Primary Care Using Research Based Evidence

May 06, 2021 11:00 AM -12:00 PM

This webinar will give research-based evidence for a health system integrated approach to management of opioid prescribing and opioid use disorder, particularly in the primary care settings. It will include a discussion of the role of nurse care manager, data system surveillance and academic detailing to improve outcomes for patients.
In addition, it will review current epidemiological data and recent research that highlights striking disparities with respect to diagnosis and treatment of opioid use disorder. We will identify the growing disparities in overdose deaths among black Americans and briefly contextualize these findings with our historical approaches to treatment. We will then discuss how to use health equity frameworks to center equity and improve care for vulnerable populations with opioid use disorder within the health system.
