March 10 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Don’t miss out! See nationally acclaimed pain management expert Dr. Jeff Fudin present on free software that can save lives!

Please join us for a technology demonstration of free software to help prescribers, nurses, pharmacists, and other clinicians who work in any care setting assess patients/residents for opioid overdose and use disorder risks, help clinicians interpret urine drug screens, and qualify patients for in-home naloxone.

We’ll also explore other free apps for opioid harm reduction.
