Webinar description:
Our country is facing an opioid crisis. The patients discussed in this webinar present with serious medical conditions and substance use disorders. The Code Outreach Special Team (COST) is a multi-disciplinary approach that borrows from outpatient substance abuse models to treat this hospitalized population. It ensures consistent and supportive care during a prolonged hospital admission and connects patients to necessary services once their antibiotic therapy has ended. This presentation will outline the development and components of the program as well as how to implement this in other facilities in conjunction with community partners.

Educational objectives:

  • Describe the process through which an innovative intervention was developed to support and assist patients in this group.
  • Identify challenges that exist in providing support and assistance to these patients.
  • Identify and describe the multi-modal interventions to best support and assist this group of patients.
