Integrated ED Referral Value: A Medical-Dental Team Approach to Reduce Opioid Use and Increase Access to Care
This session provides a comprehensive profile of a successful “dentally driven” ED Referral program developed within a dental residency program which includes effective strategies to address opioid abuse issues and access to care dilemmas. Resolving ED dental utilization addresses substance abuse issues, while connecting pregnant women, diabetics, and autistic patients to dental homes. It also has meaningful impact in the medical community, educating them on pathways to collaborate professionally within a well designed interdisciplinary system.
