Our team is implementing a multipronged approach to mitigating opioid-related risk while optimizing opioid-sparing multimodal pain management during hospitalization for orthopedic trauma. This presentation will discuss the use of paraprofessionals, known as life care specialists and systems levels approaches to increase naloxone access at one of the largest level 1 trauma centers in the country.
