Increasing Access Points Through Innovation in Community Pharmacy

The Northwest Rural Opioid Technical Assistance Collaborative presents our monthly webinar series. 

November 30th, 2024 at 12:00 PM PT

Speakers: Tyler Hemsley, PharmD and Alicia Knotts, PharmD

Description: Access to OUD/SUD and associated supportive services can be challenging and often problematic due to stigma associated with existing practice. Community pharmacies represent an untapped resource to expand entry points, decrease delays in treatment, enhance collaboration among providers and increase support for patients.

Objectives: by the end of this webinar, participants should be able to:

  • Discuss current state for OUD/SUD services including detox, MAT, recovery and harm reduction strategies in the region. -

  • Identify at least 3 barriers that currently exist (Access points, provider shortage, stigma, no standard workflows) -

  • Illustrate the untapped potential in community pharmacies based on recent legislation and scope of practice - Provide innovative examples of how community pharmacies are engaging in OUD/SUD services

Date and Time: 
November 30, 2023 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm
