The Opioid Crisis: New Threats to Caregivers

Session Overview

We are interrupting our current Sepsis series to address the Opioid Crisis and new threats to caregivers and patients.

Dr. Gladstone McDowell is one of our nation’s leading pain management experts who has practiced as a urologic oncologist, anesthesiologist, and pain management physician. He frequently speaks to caregivers as well as youth on the dangers of pain medicines and our current opioid crisis. He will address the latest life threatening developments from the introduction of Fentanyl additives to street drugs that are now threatening our first responders, emergency caregivers, and our patients.

A reactor panel of patient advocates and experts will react to the presentations addressing this latest threat.

We offer these online webinars at no cost to our participants.
