Statistics released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that the number of prescribed opioids and opioid overdose deaths has quadrupled since 1999. Physicians need to improve their identification of those with or at risk for opioid use disorder (OUD) and intervene to prevent further substance abuse. Physicians also need to become more informed about current and emerging therapies for OUD. In this live, continuing medical education meeting, an expert panel of physicians will discuss effective ways to diagnose and manage their patients with OUD.
