The Problem

  • Medication for addiction treatment (MAT) with buprenorphine reduces all cause mortality
  • A recent national survey demonstrated that 93% of emergency medicine providers worked in EDs that could not provide it
  • Best estimates place the lag between creation of new evidence based practices, & widespread adoption to standard practice is 17 years (Morris et al 2011).
  • What we did

  • We took the best practices developed by Dr. Martin
  • Implemented the best practices of Implementation Science
  • A disseminated the knowledge to ED Doctors around the world
