Speaker:  Dr. William Falco, Medical Director spoke to us about the Opioid epidemic, how we got here and what Froedtert South Emergency Departments are doing to help reduce opioid-associated harm through safer prescribing and the implementation of evidence-based interventions such as E-Qual.  Clean out your cupboards and medicine cabinets of your old prescriptions and bring them to a drop off site (Kenosha Public Safety Building, PP Police Department or any police department in your community!), to avoid them falling into the wrong hands. Addiction happens regardless of your race, gender, or socioeconomic status.
