LOUD in the ED is a provincial quality improvement project lead by the BC Patient Safety & Quality Council in partnership with the Overdose Emergency Response Center and the BC Center for Substance Use. It is based on the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s Collaborative Breakthrough Series model for healthcare improvement.

LOUD in the ED aims to improve the experience of OUD care for people and providers, and to reduce the morbidity and mortality for persons with OUD in the ED by improving access to and quality of evidence informed care, including the process and access to buprenorphine-naloxone.

Up to 22 teams will be invited to six virtual learning webinars, and one in-person learning day in Vancouver on April 22, 2020. Teams will be provided with a robust toolkit full of change ideas and quality improvement methodologies to guide improvement at the point of care. Participants will have access to a faculty of subject area experts from across the province, coaching calls with an improvement lead, and site visits from key leaders to help with their improvement efforts.
