Webinar: OUD and the Emergency Department Experience during the COVID-19 Pandemic (4/30/2020)

April 27, 2020

Thank you to all those who have joined us in previous webinars in our ongoing series “FORE’s COVID-19 National Emergency Response: Maintaining Access to MOUD.”

In our previous webinars, we have focused on the federal and state emergency regulatory changes facilitating greater use of telemedicine, how hospitals and clinicians are implementing telemedicine in compliance with new temporary regulatory requirements, and how to best care for some of our most vulnerable patients during this extraordinary time. This week, we will focus on what Emergency Departments are experiencing during the pandemic, the implications for access to OUD treatment through the ED, and the impact on other parts of the delivery system continuum.

Please join us as we welcome Gail D’Onofrio, MD, MS, Chair of the Department of Emergency Medicine at the Yale School of Medicine, Emily Kauffman, DO, Assistant Clinical Professor and Emergency Medicine Physician at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, and Sandra Schneider, MD, FACEP, Associate Executive Director of Clinical Affairs and Past President of the American College of Emergency Physicians, on Thursday, April 30 at 3pm EST, to lead a discussion on the challenges and concerns that Emergency Departments are facing while tackling both the opioid and COVID-19 public health emergencies. The presenters will be joined by Alister Martin, MD, MPP, Emergency Medicine Specialist and Founder of ‘Get Waivered’ at Massachusetts General Hospital, for an open Q&A session following the presentation.

We continue to invite you to look at our Resources page for the most up-to-date information and guidance. You can view a recording of our previous webinars below. As always, please reach out with questions and/or resources that you believe would benefits others.
