Capacity Building to Engage the Healthcare Community to Reduce Opioid Prescribing

Registration is forthcoming!

We know that the opiate crisis is affecting all of our communities.  We also know that it takes a comprehensive approach to affect change.  Collaboration and partnerships across sectors and the continuum of services is a key part of this.  One partnership that holds great promise to affect change is between prevention and the healthcare systems in our states and communities.  As prevention professionals, we know the science of what works.  Healthcare providers see the children, parents, and other community members we want to reach with our primary prevention initiatives.  


The New England PTTC is proud to partner with CADCA to bring this two-day training to New England to help you develop your approach to creating or improving these partnerships in your community.  In this training, you will be provided the information, strategies, and tools, to engage with healthcare providers in your community, to build a successful partnership to advance and broaden primary prevention programs and initiatives.  


After completing this two-day course you will be able to educate your community about the extent of the prescription drug and heroin problem and the role overprescribing opioids contributes to the epidemic; explore the benefits and challenges of collaborating with the medical community to conduct prescriber education programming; and with your healthcare partners, provide tools and resources you can use in your community to prevent and reduce opioid misuse and opioid use disorders.  



  • Explain how prescriber education can be a promising strategy for reducing prescription opioid misuse;
  • Identify key stakeholders from the medical community to engage in state and local efforts to prevent prescription opioid misuse;
  • Describe the benefits and challenges of collaborating with the medical community to conduct prescriber education programming; and
  • Identify relationship building strategies to effectively recruit healthcare providers for collaborative efforts to promote primary prevention strategies to address the opioid issues in your state or community.
