SHOUT Webinar 2: Buprenorphine and Methadone Induction
Wednesday, November 29, 2017
About This Event
Buprenorphine and methadone are safe, effective, and potentially lifesaving treatments for hospitalized patients. This practical webinar gave providers the clinical tools necessary to provide methadone and buprenorphine in inpatient settings for nonpregnant adults. Participants learned about both the clinical guidelines produced by SHOUT and common clinical scenarios that providers face during treatment with opioid agonist therapy.
