Description

Hospital community health needs assessments confirm news and research findings that communities across the country are in the midst of an opioid addiction epidemic. A recent CHA survey of its member hospitals’ needs assessments found that substance abuse was identified as a high priority need among the majority of survey respondents. As hospitals develop their implementation strategies and work with community partners it is important for them to understand the factors that have led to the crisis and what interventions work.
 
Dr. Andrew Kolodny, co-director of opioid policy research at the Heller School for Social Policy and Management at Brandeis University, will provide webinar participants with an overview of the epidemic and then discuss effective community interventions, including what needs to be in place to make those interventions successful, and government policies that can help or hinder these treatment efforts.

Objectives:

The purpose of this webinar is to:

  • Explain the factors that led to the opioid addiction epidemic and why it has been so difficult to address
  • Describe effective prevention and treatment interventions, including public policies
  • Identify key partners that hospitals should work with to carry out interventions

Presenter:

Dr. Andrew Kolodny
Co-Director of Opioid Policy Research
Brandeis University
