Johns Hopkins University Webinars in Patient Safety and Quality Improvement by Idowu Olabode : June 14, 2017, 03:29:04 PM
The Armstrong Institute periodically hosts free educational webinars to support the efforts of health care organizations everywhere to improve the safety, quality and value of care.

Topic: “Taming the Opioid Epidemic: The Role of Naloxone Prescribing”
Date and Time: June 14, 2017, 2-3 p.m. EDT

Presenters
Suzanne Amato Nesbit, PharmD, BCPS, CPE, FCCP, Clinical Pharmacy Specialist – Pain Management, The Johns Hopkins Hospital

Juliana Zschoche, PharmD, BCPS, Clinical Pharmacy Specialist – Emergency Medicine, The Johns Hopkins Hospital



Summary
The statistics on opioid overdoses in the United States are staggering: Since 1999, overdose deaths from opioids have nearly quadrupled. In 2015, more than 33,000 deaths involved opioids. Often, by the time that paramedics arrive, it is too late to save a life.

As this epidemic rages, more health care organizations are taking steps to prescribe naloxone (Narcan®) to high-risk patients to reverse opioid overdoses. In this webinar, clinical pharmacy specialists Suzanne Nesbit and Juliana Zschoche will:

Review methods for identifying patients at high overdose risk

Provide recommendations for writing and filling of naloxone prescriptions

Discuss challenges to developing and implementing naloxone prescribing across a health system

Compare strategies for incorporating overdose education and naloxone programs into different care settings

Their presentation will draw on their experiences of creating and implementing a naloxone-prescribing policy across the Johns Hopkins Health System’s hospitals, ambulatory settings and outpatient pharmacies.

This webinar will include time for Q&A.
