PODCAST: 1 in 5 series: From ER to Primary Care: Meeting Patients Where They’re At

At the California Academy of Family Physicians, we know that Addiction Medicine is Family Medicine. In our latest series 1 in 5, we bring you stories of doctors - and their patients - who have worked together to reduce the harm done by opioid use disorder (OUD). These brief stories will bring you into the hearts and minds of our guests. We hope that this will inspire you to do everything in your power to bring medical attention to the OUD patients in your practice. 

1 in 5 Series: From ER to Primary Care: Meeting Patients Where They're At

What happens in the ER and how can family docs provide the best to OUD patients when they reach our care? Dr. Lind shares her view from the emergency department, and sheds light on substance use navigators, Bridge programs, stigma, and more.
