Baltimore County Opioid Academic Detailing Project

What is Academic Detailing?
An interactive in-person healthcare practitioner educational outreach to optimize clinical decisions and improve patient care.

The Opioid Academic Detailing Project offers evidence-based information to support therapeutic decisions specific to pain management and substance use disorder. Academic detailers are trained public health professionals who offer brief visits with practitioners to discuss their needs in prescribing controlled dangerous substances, supporting patients with pain management needs, and referring or offering substance use disorder treatment.

Academic detailers connect practitioners with evidence-based, clinically relevant and actionable resources offered by their local, state, and federal health agencies.  Clinicians need high quality information that is relevant to clinical problems;  focused on real world decisions; and customized to their clinical setting.  Academic detailers “close the gap” between best-available evidence and real-world clinical practice.

More information can be found here.

Requests for a detailing session and support for opioid prescribing and safe drug disposal options available through the Baltimore County Department of Health. Please contact R. Adrian Boswell at 410-887-8188 or for more details.
