Every day we see the impact of the opioid epidemic as it manifests itself in our emergency department and at the bed side. Not only is it deadly in our neighborhoods, it’s affecting our ability to successfully care for all our patients. At St. Peter’s Health Partners and Trinity Health, we are working collaboratively to enact best-practice approaches to successfully stem the tide of opioid addiction. Now is your opportunity to Take Action to advance legislation to combat the national opioid crisis.
As we continue our commitment to honoring the sacredness and dignity of every person while altering the course of opioid and substance use disorders, we must provide solutions that encompass prevention, intervention, treatment and recovery. Through the Reducing Opioid Harm: Promoting People Centered Care public policy card, key initiatives are outlined that offer common-sense approaches that leave no one behind.
