The Opioid Crisis has reached a critical point. Providers in healthcare are faced with regulations and emerging new trends in best practices nearly every day. They are faced with the ethical dilemma of what is the best treatment approach for caring for their patients. This conference aims to address the ethical considerations of the Opioid Crisis and what providers can do to ensure that their patients are achieving the best possible outcomes.
Some of the topics we’ll cover are the ethics surrounding pregnancy, neonatal abstinence syndrome, infectious disease, and bias. North Carolina Attorney General, Josh Stein, will provide the Keynote Address and discuss the ethics of the North Carolina response to the Opioid Crisis. Stein has made combatting the opioid crisis a top priority. His office drafted the STOP Act to reduce the number of people who become addicted to opioids through smarter prescribing practices and the Synthetic Opioid Control Act to close loopholes in state criminal law concerning fentanyl. Both laws passed the General Assembly unanimously and were signed into law by the Governor.
