Episode 3 - Dr. Kate Herlihy, Dr. Patty Cantlin, Where to Go for Care
Reducing ED utilization is the subject of two segments this month. In our Meaty Topic, Mike and Julie introduce the ACO’s Where to Go for Care infographic designed to help patients decide when they should go to the ED. In The Sizzle, Kate Herlihy reviews her successful initiative to reduce pediatric ED visits in western Maine. And, for a little variety, Julie takes us outside to visit Patty Cantlin’s patient garden at Maine Nephrology Associates. Have a suggestion for BACON? Email us at email@example.com.
In Franklin County, Healthy Community Coalition (HCC) has been identified as the Community Distributor for naloxone. This means anyone in the community who feels they need access to naloxone can contact HCC to receive a free naloxone kit along with education on how to recognize and respond to an opioid overdose.
