Wakefield , RI US
April 7, 2020

Physicians will review the latest statistics in youth regarding the opioid epidemic, including nonmedical use of prescription opioids and its associated risk for hospitalization and heroin use. They will be engaged in recognizing potential risk and protective factors of opioid misuse and use disorder in adolescents and young adults and able to summarize current recommendations for acute pain in this vulernable population. Use of universal screening tools to determine youth’s level of involvement in substances and how to employ brief intervention and referral to treatment will also be modeled. Physicians will compare and contrast medications for opioid use disorder in adolescence, and identify ways to expand naloxone distribution in their practice through co-prescribing with opioid prescriptions, as well as, discuss home-based prevention strategies.
