CME Webcast Teaches About Opioid Overdoses

OSUWexnerbloglogo2014 CME Webcast Teaches About Opioid Overdoses. Many people who overdose on opioids die before anyone can help them but increasingly, our first responders and emergency departments encounter patients when they are unconscious but still alive. On this CME webcast, we’re going to discuss opioid overdose: how to recognize it and how to treat it. Here with me in the studio is Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine and Internal Medicine, Dr. Emily Kauffman. And also joining us is the Program Director of the Franklin County Rapid Response Emergency Addiction and Crisis Team, nurse practitioner Amy Becher.
