The Opioid Crisis – The Hidden Impact on Patients and Providers

Pre-Acute Care

About This Webinar

Each day, the news about the opioid crisis worsens.  You know, you live it—more emergency calls, more addiction … and a draining emotional toll.  The hidden impact runs deep, both for patients who need your help and the compassion fatigue that can strike healthcare providers.

This insightful webinar takes an in-depth look at that hidden impact, discussing the debates about handling patient care but also a behind-the-scenes look at what’s happening to EMTs, ambulance and healthcare organizations, and our communities.  You’ll discover leading edge practices to implement in your companies, important self-care techniques and hope for the future.

Watch this webinar to learn:

  • The scope of the problem that today’s communities face
  • Treatment responses—what’s working, what’s not and what’s new in approaches to care
  • The impact on first responders and emergency rooms—stretched resources, increased costs and compassion fatigue
  • What the future holds—predictions about the 5-year impact, the evolution of treatment and the need for a larger discussion about mental health
