Supporting Providers after Overdose Death

Amy M. Yule, MD; France R. Levin, MD

Target Audience: This activity is designed and accredited for nurses, physicians, physician assistants, social workers, pharmacists, interprofessional teams, and other health professionals. 

Module Description:
 Overdose deaths have increased in urban and rural counties; however, rural communities continue to be disproportionately impacted. Approximately half of rural counties do not have a provider waivered to prescribe buprenorphine and there is extremely limited access to harm reduction services in rural communities. This webinar will explore why rural areas have been severely impacted by the overdose epidemic and discuss unique challenges, as well as opportunities to make demonstrable improvements to engaging rural patients with opioid use disorder. 

Educational Objectives:

  • Review therapeutic and legal issues to consider when working with families after an overdose death
  • Describe ways to care for themselves and support co-workers after an overdose death
  • Summarize possible quality, safety, and regulatory review procedures to follow after an overdose death
