Statement of Need

The opioid epidemic is ravaging many parts of the United States, resulting in drug overdose deaths emerging as the leading cause of injury death. The 2015 statistics from Health and Human Services on human and economic costs were staggering, reporting that 12.5 million people misused prescription opioids that year, resulting in $78.5 billion in economic costs. Yet the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAA)'s National Epidemiological Survey on Alcohol Abuse and Related Conditions-III showed that only about 5% of people with OUD received treatment in the past year, and only 17% ever received help such as medication and behavioral counseling.

Two populations in particular warrant attention of healthcare providers: incarcerated individuals and veterans. Approximately half of state and federal prisoners meet criteria for substance use disorder, and the number of veterans addicted to opioids rose 55% between 2010 and 2015.

This CME Outfitters Live and On Demand initiative features expert faculty working to improve recognition of the risk of relapse or death among special populations with OUD and providing information about novel programs and how to integrate them into clinical practice with patients with OUD.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:

  • Recognize the risk of relapse or death among incarcerated individuals with untreated OUD upon release.
  • Apply data for MAT among special populations (veterans in the VA system, incarcerated individuals) to decision-making for individuals with OUD.
  • Heighten awareness of novel programs in the community to treat patients with OUD and integrate one best practice tip into clinical practice.

The following learning objectives pertain only to those requesting CNE or CPE credit:

  • Recognize the risk of relapse or death among incarcerated individuals with untreated OUD upon release.
  • Summarize data for MAT among special populations (veterans in the VA system, incarcerated individuals) to decision-making for individuals with OUD.
  • Heighten awareness of novel programs in the community to treat patients with OUD and integrate one best practice tip into clinical practice.

Financial Support

Supported by educational grants from Alkermes, Inc. and Indivior Inc.

Target Audience

Physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, and pharmacists who treat patients with opioid use disorder.
