Description

Leveraging a series of screening and assessment tools built into the EHR workflow, this organization's nurses and social workers screen all patients admitted into inpatient and surgical units for risk of opioid use and addiction. If a patient is at risk, an automatic order is generated to trigger action by the their Substance Abuse Intervention Team (SUIT.) SUIT is a team-based consultation service consisting of physicians trained in addiction medicine, advanced practice nurses, registered nurses, licensed social workers and pharmacists working together to identify and treat patients at risk for opioids and other substances.

This session is part of a special program called Best Practices Symposium: Leveraging Information and Technology to Combat Opioid Addiction. Extra fees and separate registration is required.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Illustrate how to adapt currently available risk assessment tools into an EHR-enabled nursing workflow
  • Describe how to facilitate electronic handoffs to social workers to provide secondary assessments for patients identified as potential risks for opioid abuse
  • Outline how to create a SUIT team to drive at risk patients to available rehabilitation and support services to help them combat their addiction
