Opioid Use Disorder Podcast

This is a podcast for EMS clinicians about Opioid Use Disorder. In the past few years, we've learned that opioid use disorder and opiate overdoses have become the number one cause of death in people under 50 years of age. Naloxone has been used in prehospital medicine for approximately 40 years. Although its use has saved many lives from an acute overdose, its administration alone is insufficient to help those with opioid use disorder move from use to recovery.

Dr. Julia D'Alo, MD, Joette Carroll, a recovery specialist, and Owen Traynor, MD, discuss how to be more helpful to those with an opioid use disorder. Published 11 November 2021.
