Addressing the opioid epidemic: Strategies to improve education and increase awareness

On-Demand Webinar

Did you know more than 100 people a day die from an opioid overdose? Forty percent of those deaths are linked to prescription pain medications. How can we engage and support patients before leaving the hospital to make sure they don’t become part of these statistics? 

Digital health companies, health systems and the federal government are all testing various responses to this epidemic, but which is right for your organization?

Join Dr. Robin Newhouse, dean of the Indiana University School of Nursing, and Dr. Karen Drenkard, chief clinical & nursing officer at GetWellNetwork, to discuss effective strategies implemented in Indiana. You'll also learn about GetWellNetwork’s interactive patient education solutions designed to interrupt the prescription-addiction pathway and support patients and families struggling with opioid use disorder.

In this webinar, you'll learn about:

  • A partnership in Indiana to reduce the number and impact of substance use disorders
  • GetWellNetwork’s suite of technology pathways designed to improve education about prescription opioids, increase awareness of proper disposal practices and promote healthy pain management
  • Education and content available to guide your patients and families towards recovery
