Opioid Crisis: Implement a Team-Based Naloxone Saturation Campaign
The misuse and abuse of illicit and prescribed opioids has motivated important dialogue throughout the Nation, in our homes, our workplaces, and within health systems. Hear how active partnerships between numerous clinical and non-clinical departments throughout a large integrated health system led to the diversification of our Emergency Medicine clinical portfolios.
