Emergency physicians receive grant to advance treatment for opioid users

From Yale:

Melnick and D’Onofrio, researchers at Yale School of Medicine, have just received the first year of funding from NIDA in the amount of $819,454 to develop this health information technology intervention and deploy it across multiple healthcare systems. If they successfully meet the first-year project milestones, NIDA will fund a $6.6 million, four-year, multicenter trial to test the intervention across these systems.

According to Melnick and D’Onofrio, “This trial will answer the critical implementation question in opioid use disorder care: ‘What is the best way to maximize the rate of adoption of emergency department-initiated buprenorphine and referral to medication assisted treatment?’”
