FDA LAUNCHES NEW CAMPAIGN FOR PRIMARY CARE PROVIDERS TO TREAT OPIOID USE DISORDER

FDA has launched a new campaign assisting primary care providers to recognize and treat opioid use disorder (OUD). As part of its campaign, FDA has provided firsthand testimonials, training and other resources to help providers.   

According to FDA, primary care providers treating other chronic health conditions are key potential prescribers of medications for OUD, as these providers can manage care for OUD with similar shared decision-making that assists patients to manage asthma, diabetes, or hypertension. According to FDA, an estimated 6 million people aged 12 or older have OUD, and that treatment of OUD is most effective when medications are used.
