Is there a Doctor in the House? Addressing Opioid Medical Availability in Oklahoma

Monday, July 15th
4:00 PM - 5:30 PM
Grapevine D

The medical field in Oklahoma has been challenged by its role in the opioid epidemic and Oklahoma communities are asking them to play a role in addressing the issue. By using the lens of prevention and using a grassroots approach of engaging prescribers and community, positive change is occurring in rural and urban communities. This workshop will highlight the overall state strategies and a presentation by a local provider that will present their struggles and triumphs that they have experienced in a small rural community of Oklahoma.

At the end of the training session, the participants will be able to: 

1. Describe the collaboration between Oklahoma Department of Health and Substance Abuse Services (ODMHSAS), local communities to address non medical use of prescription
2. Provide examples of community-level strategies to address the medical availability of prescription opioids
3. Provide real world strategies that are being used in communities to address non-medical use of prescription opioids

All presentations that have been made available to CADCA have been posted at this time.

Sessions without presentations were not made available to CADCA to share.

As a reminder, the password to access the presentations has emailed to participants and is also available on your Program Cover.
