EM Basic

Join Dan McCollum and EM clinical pharmacist RJ LaCoursiere as they discuss the use of buprenorphine for the treatment of Opioid Use Disorder.

  • Who should be considered for treatment with Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)?
  • Why should it be avoided if the patient isn't in acute withdrawal?
  • What is a DEA X waiver and why should you look into getting waivered?
  • How can we reduce stigma for these patients?
