LINK Study: Integrating Care is Critical to Best Serve our Communities
Covid-19 has overextended many providers. At the same time, the heightened stress, loneliness, and anxiety faced by their patients exacerbates the ongoing opioid crisis. Addressing both challenges requires new tools and workflows.
To help, Altarum is offering free cross training, ongoing technical assistance, and $3,000 organizational stipend to equip providers with the skills to screen and refer their clients. This in-person or virtual training will be scheduled at your convenience and will use fun, interactive activities, teach-backs, and role-playing to build on the knowledge and experience of participants, and enhance collaboration between the two organizations.
