2018 Conference - Confronting the Opioid Crisis in a Primary Care Setting

Bryan Hollinger, Bob Paeglow, Dana Vallangeon, Tara Blair; Physicians are uncomfortable dealing with opioid misuse and addiction. This panel discussion led by Dr. Bryan Hollinger (Esperanza, Philadelphia) will explore how three clinics are addressing the national opioid crisis in their day-to-day interactions with their patients. The panel will cover tools to recognize misuse and addiction and present interventions including pharmacotherapy. The last part of the program will be devoted to learning how to communicate non-judgmentally but without enabling the patient to continue their misuse or addiction, as well as how to share the gospel in a nonsectarian setting in a manner that is acceptable and also sees patients connecting with the gospel and local churches.
