Event: Reducing the Care Gap: How HealthierHere’s MOUD Innovation Projects are Expanding Low-Barrier MOUD Access in King County
Date/Time: 03/24/2021 at 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
In the Fall of 2019 HealthierHere launched its first of a series of ‘innovation projects,’ dedicating funds to groups of providers to test new models of care and expand access and reduce disparities in the delivery of needed services.
Country Doctor-Carolyn Downs (in partnership with Sound and Hepatitis Education Project) and Public Health- Seattle & King County (in partnership with Navos) were both funded to expand and streamline access to medications for opioid use disorder (MOUD) services for individuals leaving emergency departments and jail settings. Now in their second year, HealthierHere is eager to share early lessons learned from these two MOUD innovation projects.
Join us March 24th 2-3pm to learn about these MOUD innovation projects. Program staff will share:
- Details about their innovative programs
- Successes and challenges
- Advice for others interested in implementing similar models of care
Who should attend? Anyone providing services for people with Opioid Use Disorder (including physical health, behavioral health, and community-based SDOH providers) as well as policy makers, funders, and other key OUD stakeholders
