Acute Care & Trauma Surgery / Surgical Critical Care
IPC Lecture Series
The IPC Lecture Series aims to provide physicians with information about injury prevention. It will introduce Emergency Medicine faculty, residents, and the community of interest to injury surveillance data, intervention strategies (particularly those based in clinical settings), risk assessments, and policy changes in areas including opioid overdose, older adult falls, motor vehicle trauma, and concussion, among others. Lectures will be provided by clinicians, researchers, epidemiologists, and public health program directors. Though embedded in the Emergency Medicine Department’s resident training program, the series is open to the BMC campus and public health practitioners throughout the greater Boston area.
Please join us for an upcoming presentation titled “Improving Opioid Medication Safety Among Trauma Patients” given by Janette Baird, PhD and Craig Mailloux, RN, BSN on April 13, 2016 at 11:30am located at 650 Albany Street in room 714.
By the conclusion of the meeting participants will be able to:
1. Identify rates of risk factors associated with increased risk of opioid overdose and potential abuse among trauma patients discharged from two Level 1 trauma centers.
2. Explain the electronic medical record based intervention designed to promote judicious opioid prescribing and reduce opioid-related misuse and overdose.
3. Identify improvements in opioid prescription practices associated with the electronic medical record based intervention.
