With California's escalating opioid epidemic, all clinicians should be well-versed in treating patients with opioid use disorder. Now, with naloxone available over the counter, everyone can be empowered to reverse opioid overdoses. But how many of us are comfortable prescribing buprenorphine, referring to methadone treatment, or using naloxone?
Join us on October 10, 2023, at 12:00 p.m. for the next installment of the California Medical Association’s Virtual Grand Rounds – Opioid Treatments: Practical Guidance for Clinicians – which will cover how to use these important lifesaving medications.
Our featured presenter will be Marlene Martin, M.D., an associate professor of medicine at UCSF, director of the UCSF Addiction Care Team and hospitalist based in San Francisco General Hospital. Additionally, California State Epidemiologist Erica Pan, M.D., MPH, will present updates on COVID-19 and the current status of vaccine recommendations for the fall. The free one-hour webinar is open to all interested parties.
Virtual Grand Rounds: Emerging Public Health Issues is a free and monthly series providing the latest patient management news and resources. The effort is a partnership between CMA and the California Health and Human Services Agency, with the California Academy of Physician Assistants and the Osteopathic Physicians and Surgeons of California.
If you are unable to attend the live event, it will be available for on-demand playback at cmadocs.org/grandrounds.
