Enhancing Engagement in OUD Care for Disadvantaged Populations
12pm – 1pm
It is well known that the opioid crisis affects all parts of society. However, certain communities experience notable disparities in morbidity and morality from Opioid Use Disorder (OUD). This presentation will review the data around disparities in OUD outcomes and treatment among disadvantaged groups and discuss clinical approaches and models of care to address these inequities.
- Describe the disproportionately high rates of adverse effects of OUD among disadvantaged populations and several reasons for these disparities.
- Explain strategies that we can employ in our care delivery system to better engage disadvantaged populations in care.
- Identify one actionable step that you can take in your care setting to address inequities in OUD outcomes.
