Building Blocks for Sustainability: Patient Engagement & Retention
As overdose deaths continue to rise, patient access to medications for addiction treatment (MAT) and related services is key to reversing this trend. According to data from the California Department of Public Health, from Q1 2019 to Q4 2020 the rate of opioid overdose deaths has more than doubled. While many agencies have received grant funding to build MAT programs, there are concerns about sustainability when those funds are no longer available. This four part webinar series will provide participants with information and tools to help maintain and sustain MAT programs that provide lifesaving medications and interventions for opioid use disorder. This first session will review the impact of patient dropout on program financing and discuss strategies that can improve engagement and retention.

Future topics will include:
-Community Resources for Recovery (March 24th, 2022, 10am-11am PDT)
-Care Management (May 19th, 2022, 10am-11am PDT)
-Medi-Cal (July 21st, 2022, 10am-11am PDT)
