Qualidigm: Rapid Induction Starting in the ED (RISE) Training

Qualidigm, in collaboration with BlueWater Emergency Partners and several other partners (MMA and ACEP) is working under a contract with the state of Maine to host an education program for interested hospital Emergency Departments (EDs) focusing on how to initiate buprenorphine in the ED.

If your ED is interested in receiving training or technical assistance on initiating buprenorphine in the ED from peer coaches in the field please contact Kayla Cole at kcole@qualidigm.org or tel. 207-620-8526 ext. 1027.
