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.
