Course Description:
Opioid use disorder and related morbidity and mortality continues to increase in much of the United States. As a result, related emergency department visits and hospitalizations have increased significantly. The presentation will provide an overview of the opioid epidemic and the laws and regulations that dictate how medication assisted treatment (primarily buprenorphine and methadone) can be used in the treatment of opioid use disorder. It will also discuss the exceptions that exist to regulations that allow for providers to use medication to treat opioid use disorder in patients seen in the emergency department or admitted to the hospital.

Learning Objectives:
• Distinguish the role that hospitals can have in providing medication to treat opioid use disorder.
• Summarize the exceptions to federal laws that allow medication to be provided to patients in the emergency department and hospital.
• Analyze hospital-based initiatives to treat opioid use disorder in various parts of the United States.
