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.
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
