HANYS Opioid Lunch and Learn Series; Information Age Approaches to the Opioid Epidemic
November 15, 2018
Noon - 1 p.m.
Registration is open to HANYS Members and Non-Members
HANYS’ Statewide Opioid Addiction Prevention and Management Collaborative supports members’ efforts to improve the delivery of care to patients experiencing opioid addiction and manage the care of patients with substance use disorders. Our Opioid Lunch and Learn sessions focus on key themes identified through member feedback in the regional roundtable sessions, including alternative pain management, coordination of care, data implications, stigma, and prescribing practices and protocols.
Thursday, November 15: Information Age Approaches to the Opioid Epidemic
Featured Presenter: Richard N. Rosenthal, MD, Professor and Director, Division of Addiction Psychiatry, Stony Brook University
This webinar will provide attendees with an overview of the opioid epidemic from a data-driven perspective, including what sources of data are currently available for clinical, research or administrative use or generally unavailable due to governmental sequestration or industry control. Important issues such as the limitations of standard methodologies and lack of treatment outcome standards will be discussed.
At the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:
- understand the need for replicable, high quality data to inform responses to the opioid epidemic at both the clinician and the community levels;
- distinguish the different data domains of relevance to understanding individual clinical, institutional and public health approaches to addressing the opioid epidemic; and
- discuss the relevant opportunities and drawbacks of current methodologies, as well as promising approaches to identifying and addressing risk among individuals, sub-populations, and localities.
