About This Event
Held: Wednesday, February 14, 2018
This webinar continued the discussion of Opioid Agonist Therapy (OAT) implementation in an inpatient setting begun in Webinar 5. We focussed on discharge planning for inpatients on buprenorphine. We also reviewed models for connection to outpatient care on discharge, especially in communities where buprenorphine prescribers are less available. Finally, we briefly discussed the option of buprenorphine inductions in the ED.
