This webinar, featuring Michael Nelson, MD of Cook County Health, will explore the effect of the dual crises of the COVID-19 pandemic and the opioid addiction and overdose crisis on health care professionals and their patients. As the COVID-19 pandemic spread across the country and the world, the opioid epidemic worsened. How can physicians and other health care professionals treat both the pandemic and the epidemic? What can physicians and health care professionals do to manage the stress of dealing with two major crises at the same time?
At the conclusion of this learning activity, participants will be able to:
- Describe the neuroanatomy of SUD/OUD.
- Discuss barriers to treatment of SUD/OUD.
- Discuss the impact of COVID-19 on the opioid crisis.
- Recognize the stressors on health care professionals of responding to the COVID-19 and opioid crises.
- Identify ways to manage the stressors associated with responding to COVID-19 and the opioid crisis.
