This event is now apart of the Clinical Diagnostics & Research Virtual Event Series.
Labroots is pleased to announce the 2nd Annual Event in the Opioid Crisis Virtual Event Series taking place on November 3, 2021. The Opioid epidemic has been called the worst drug crisis in American history. Join us as we discuss and exchange thoughts on the rise, spread, and control of Opioids.
Opioids are chemicals that bind to receptors in the brain and body associated with pain, reward, and addictive behaviors. Opioid medications are used by healthcare providers to relieve pain that cannot be treated with less powerful drugs. Common opioids include heroin and narcotic medications such as oxycodone, buprenorphine, morphine, codeine, methadone, and fentanyl. Opioid-related diseases are associated with overuse, misuse, and dependence on these drugs, and they include opioid-use disorder, opioid intoxication, and opioid withdrawal.
The tracks for this year's event include:
Medications for Opioid Use
Stigma Surrounding Opioid Use Disease
Informatics and Opioid Stewardship
Health System Delivery of Opioid Use Disease Treatment
