Emergency Medicine X Waiver Training

Tuesday, May 11, 2021
8:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Description

Emergency physicians can uniquely impact the opioid epidemic because the emergency department is where these patients come for care. While most "X Waiver" training courses are developed for and led by psychiatrists and office-based addiction specialists, the recently approved version was written by a team of emergency medicine physicians. At the end of this workshop participants will be credentialed to register for their DATA 2000 (X) waiver and be prepared to manage opioid use disorder (OUD) patients. This session includes lunch.
