The COVID-19 pandemic has had harmful effects on the opioid epidemic. While a negative effect was predicted, the presenters will report on this reality in the hospital setting. They have seen a sharp rise in hospitalized patients with opioid use disorder (OUD). their data should encourage ongoing efforts to reduce barriers in accessing medications for treatment, harm reduction interventions and additional education for trainees, primary care providers, and hospitalists alike. In the current climate, these interventions are critical to save the lives of patients with OUD. Click here to sign up for this free webinar.
