On Oct. 3, Congress passed critical opioid legislation. Included in the package are the “Alternatives to Opioids (ALTO) in the Emergency Department Act” and the “Preventing Overdoses While in Emergency Rooms (POWER) Act.” ACEP worked closely with the bill sponsors to develop these important pieces of legislation to ensure that emergency physicians are equipped with the tools they need to fight the opioid epidemic from both a prevention and treatment standpoint, and provide patients with the care they need. The legislation is expected to be sent directly to President Donald Trump for signature, which he has agreed to do.
