Activity Dates: 01/11/2023 - 06/30/2027
Join your colleagues to dialogue about challenging substance use disorder (SUD) cases where evidence can’t be uniformly applied and doesn’t always exist. Through 30 minutes of facilitated case discussion and debate, participants will problem solve solutions offering all the opportunity to learn. Though answers aren’t always available, together we chase down the possibilities and improve patient care!
January 11, 2023, 11:00-11:30 AM Central: Low Dose Buprenorphine Induction
In the era of fentanyl, initiating life-saving medications for opioid use disorder has become more complicated than ever. In this session, we will present a case of fentanyl use disorder and the complexity of transitioning to buprenorphine. We will review low dose overlap initiation (LDOI) and the appropriateness of its use in this population. The discussion will include example protocols and determining LDOI's place in clinical practice.
Case Presenter: Marnie Noel, PharmD, BCPP
Moderator: James Gasper, PharmD, BCPP
February 8, 2023, 11:00-11:30 AM Central: What To Do When Ambulatory Detoxification for Alcohol Use Disorder Fails
In today's over-burdened and underfunded healthcare system, access to hospital-based detoxification for alcohol is not always an option. This leaves us increasingly reliant on ambulatory management in less structured settings which often doesn't go as planned. In this session we will discuss common scenarios where repeated attempts at outpatient detoxification go awry and what tried and true solutions exist.
Case Presenter: James Gasper, PharmD, BCPP
Moderator: Troy Moore, PharmD, MS, BCPP
March 8, 2023, 11:00-11:30 AM Central: Interpreting Urine Drug Screens-How to Interpret Ambiguous Results
What do you do when a urine drug screen results with unexpected (or lack of expected) substances? We have all been there and careful interpretation is key. In this session, we will review 2-3 examples of urine drug test results that need investigation to determine the clinical picture. Screening, confirmation testing, and the inclusion of interdisciplinary team members will be covered.
Case Presenter: Amber Douglass, PharmD, BCPS, BCPP
Moderator: Ilona Almeida, PharmD, BCPP
