Opioids and the Masses: Early Lessons from the Epidemic
Jan 31 @ 4:30 pm – 6:00 pm
Opioids and the Masses: Early Lessons from the Epidemic @ Hiebert Lounge | Boston | Massachusetts | United States

The opioid crisis is unprecedented in its lethality and demography. Fentanyl and other synthetics have turbo-charged the death rate. As federal, state, and local governments grapple with solutions, they have encountered both promising strategies and unexpected difficulties; among the latter are the challenges of engaging patients in treatment, the paradoxes of naloxone administration, the provision of quality care in office-based, medication-assisted treatment, and the rational use of opioid painkillers where needed while curtailing over-prescribing. This talk will focus on the policy and treatment implications of these clinical realities within the larger context of social and cultural drivers of addiction.

Substance Abuse Prevention Skills Training (SAPST)
Mar 14 @ 7:03 pm – 8:03 pm
Substance Abuse Prevention Skills Training (SAPST) @ Education Development Center, Inc.  | Waltham | Massachusetts | United States

Substance Abuse Prevention Skills Training (SAPST)

Description

The SAPST is an intensive foundational course in substance abuse prevention, grounded in current research and the SAMHSA’s Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) model, which blends an in-person component with online learning. The course provides knowledge and skills to implement effective, data-driven prevention programs, practices, and policies that reduce behavioral health disparities and improve wellness. This course will be tailored to BSAS grantees, and given the wide range of experience among the current grantee cohort, will provide many opportunities for coordinators to learn from each other. Continuing Education Credits will be available for this class, and grantees may be able to use program money to stay overnight in the hotel if the commuting distance is too far (this will require individual approval from your Contract Manager).

We recognize that a 4-day training requires a significant time investment on your part and appreciate your efforts to prioritize attending this training.

WEBINAR The Opioid Crisis: Treating Addiction and Saving Lives
Mar 19 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
An estimated 2.1 million Americans have an opioid use disorder, according to the latest national data. Opioid overdose takes the lives of 4.6 Americans every hour. With a crisis of this magnitude, it is easy to lose sight of the fact that effective, life-saving treatments are out there. Medication-assisted therapy and the opioid-reversing drug naloxone, for example, are two highly effective interventions for addiction and overdose that are currently underutilized.
In last month’s webinar, we discussed strategies to prevent opioid misuse. In part two of our opioid webinar series, we will explore ways to expand the use of evidence-based treatment, including:
  • Strategies to smooth access to key drug therapies through standing orders to dispense and removal of prior authorization requirements
  • Federal and private-sector initiatives to protect the patients from sub-standard or fraudulent addiction treatment
  • A multi-sector collaboration to adopt principles of care for substance abuse treatment and to help practitioners stay abreast of the evidence
  • Ideas for using pharmacy data to identify potential abuse and for deploying telehealth technology to improve access to treatment
draft agenda is available on our website.

Fragmented Work: Greating Opportunity and Security in the Gig Econoy @ Urban College of Boston | Boston | Massachusetts | United States

Insecurity is increasingly the hallmark of work. Family-sustaining jobs have broken down into gigs and self-employment. How can basic supports like sick time, health insurance, and pensions adapt? How do we mitigate the psychological stress? Can we develop careers with real opportunity in the Gig Economy?
