Submit questions in advance for panelists  
 to lfreeman@eiconline.org by June 6, 2017.

This webcast will discuss the challenges faced by primary care providers and their staff and the unique needs of their patients and families regarding substance use disorders. What training do primary care physicians and their staff receive to effectively identify and treat patients with substance use disorders and other health-related conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, HIV, and Hepatitis C? What is available to ensure health care professionals have adequate information to refer patients to appropriate local resources for treatment and services? With the dramatic rise of opioid abuse and overdose and other related health issues, it is imperative that primary care physicians and their staff are prepared to serve their patients and all of their needs.

Dr. Holmes was a private pediatric practitioner in Vermont from 1972-2013.  To treat his patients who presented with opioid use disorders, within his practice Dr. Holmes received authorization to prescribe buprenorphine.  Many dimensions of Vermont’s work on opioid use disorders can be fairly attributed to Dr. Holmes leadership, courage, and caring to take on the disease and help individuals in need of services.
