Becoming a Harm Reductionist

Becoming a Harm Reductionist

Join the Northwest ATTC for our next webinar on December 1, 2021 (12pm - 1pm PT)!

Presenter: Callan Fockele, MD, a physician and population health research fellow at Harborview Medical Center. She works clinically in the emergency department (ED) and permanent supportive housing. She studies the social determinants of health, with a focus on addiction and homelessness. She is interested in improving transitions of care for ED-initiated buprenorphine patients, screening ED patients for social risks and needs, and providing evidence-based care to patients who use drugs.

This presentation will describe Dr. Fockele's current work using community-based participatory research to implement harm reduction inside and outside the emergency department. She will focus on her recent partnership with Public Health—Seattle & King County, the Addictions, Drug & Alcohol Institute, the Harm Reduction Research & Treatment Center, and the Public Defender Association to establish the Council of Expert Advisors on Drug Use (CEADU), which is composed of local people with lived experience. As a co-investigator on two pilot projects inspired by the passage of Washington State Senate Bill 5476, she will work with CEADU to create an implementation toolkit that integrates take-home naloxone, buprenorphine treatment, and HIV/hepatitis C testing into first-responder programs while also adapting the Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) model to improve encounters between first responders and people who use drugs.

Learning objectives:

  1. Describe harm reduction programs implemented by first responders.
  2. Explain co-design methods.
  3. Identify opportunities to implement harm reduction in your community.

Attendees of the live event will receive a Certificate of Attendance (1 hour).

Webinar: Alcohol Outlet Density, Equity and Lower Income Neighborhoods

Webinar: Alcohol Outlet Density, Equity and Lower Income Neighborhoods

(Hosted by Alcohol Policy Panel of San Diego County)

Lower income communities are often the location of choice for smoke shops, liquor stores and other adult-focused businesses. However, due to the high numbers of these businesses in such areas, they are one of several community factors that have been identified as lowering the life expectancy, health, and quality of life for those living nearby. Smart policy solutions can mitigate some of these challenges and give residents an opportunity to thrive. 

This webinar will be led by Catherine Patterson, co-executive director of CityHealth. CityHealth is an organization dedicated to promoting local solutions that can give everyone the opportunity to live healthy, full lives. Most recently, Ms. Patterson presented on a CityHealth report examining the relationship between alcohol policy/practices and violent crime in cities. She also presented at the National Association of County and City Health Officials annual conference about how community-centered alcohol licensing and practices can lead to better health outcomes.
