Opiate Use Disorder Curriculum

Opiate Use Disorder (OUD) and the impact on families is an epidemic that is reaching every community, hospital, practice and training program. Every day our teams are dealing with the struggles of screening, diagnosis, treatment, counseling, support services, acute withdrawal for the mother and treatment of neonatal abstinence syndrome in the baby.  In the materials outlined below, residency programs have an introduction to the issues above with common language, case outlines for interactive discussion and links to find tools for further support for their inpatient and outpatient programs.

The Modules:

1. Recognition and Management

2. Management of Acute Withdrawal and Treatment of OUD

3. Pain Management and System Based Care with OUD
