Effective Communication Strategies with Patients in the Hospital Setting with Opioid Use Disorder


 

Effective Communication Strategies with Patients in the Hospital Setting with Opioid Use Disorder 

 
This Opioid Training Initiative course was developed to prepare healthcare professionals who work with opioid use disorder (OUD) patients.  Through this course, Dr. Berg discusses common engagement challenges with patients in the hospital setting with OUD and discusses use of the Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) to facilitate constructive harm reduction conversations. He also identifies evidence-based communication strategies to enhance engagement and decrease discord in addressing opiate misuse.  The focus of this program is on patient communication where evidence has shown to be one of the major factors in success in recovery.
 
The information in this course has been specifically tailored to meet the needs of clinicians practicing in Texas with a focus on regional trends, laws and regulations.
