Sepsis and opioid use disorders are major sources of morbidity, mortality, and costs to the healthcare system. While most of the national focus has been on the rising number of fatal opioid overdoses, less attention has been paid to the serious infectious complications of opioid use disorders, including sepsis. In this webinar hosted by Sepsis Alliance, Drs. Rhee and Kimmel will review recent data elucidating the epidemiology of sepsis and opioid-related hospitalizations and discuss potential strategies for reducing the harms associated with the intersection of these two public health emergencies.
Simeon Kimmel, MD, MA, Assistant Professor of Medicine, Boston University School of Medicine and Boston Medical Center; Chanu Rhee, MD, MPH, FIDSA, Assistant Professor of Population Medicine, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Institute / Harvard Medical School
