Learn to Recognize the Nuances of Buprenorphine Induction in the Age of Fentanyl

CME is available and counts toward the 8-hour DEA training requirement

While hospitals provide critical access to engage patients with opioid use disorder (OUD) treatment, less than 10% of patients who are discharged for an opioid overdose are provided access to Narcan or buprenorphine. Join ISMS’ webinar to learn more about rapid induction protocols for buprenorphine and methadone, and how to manage acute pain or perioperative pain in patients with OUD.
