Designed to empower coalitions and equip them with tools to drive change, the Opioid Action Collaborative, led by Telligen, provided a platform for peer-to-peer learning and sharing among community coalitions and healthcare providers. Participants learned new techniques and interventions that they can apply to improve opioid-related outcomes in their communities. Specifically, participants learned:

  • How to identify key organizational roles and resources within their community coalition
  • The importance of language in treating substance use disorders (SUD)
  • How to describe indications for academic detailing and process for identifying detailers
  • How to identify supporting resources and tools for implementing evidence-based interventions into their care setting

In this session recording, participants heard from NFL alumnus Randy Grimes and his experience with substance use disorder.
