"Prescribing to Reduce Opioid Overdose Risk: How to Impact the Epidemic Within the Pandemic"


Join the Maine Independent Clinical Information Service (MICIS), in partnership with the Maine Medical Association Center for Quality Improvement (MMA-CQI), on Tuesday April 27, 2021, from 12 – 1 p.m.  for "Prescribing to Reduce Opioid Overdose Risk: how to impact the epidemic within the pandemic" 

Overdoses in Maine increased 32% in 2020. While the primary focus of the country has been on a novel viral pandemic, the opioid pandemic has worsened. Prescribers can make a significant impact on the crisis by attending to five areas of prescribing. We hope you can join us! 

After attending this webinar, participants will:

1. Understand risk reduction in the context of opioid prescribing

2. Obtain familiarity with the benefits of buprenorphine for opioid use disorder

3. Describe recommendations for naloxone prescribing to increase patient safety
