The first summit of the “Opioid Overdose Prevention: Emergency Care of the Post-Overdose Patient” series was held on Nov. 20, 2019 and was co-hosted by Michigan OPEN, MEDIC and the Injury Prevention Center. Discussion was facilitated among stakeholders on best practices and protocol development of post-opioid overdose care in the ED, with a specific focus on naloxone distribution. Participants gained an understanding of the current landscape of post-overdose care protocols around the state, specifically naloxone protocols.
There were over 100 attendees from across Michigan, including physician and nurse champions from the Michigan OPEN/MEDIC project’s 11 committed sites.
