It is well known that opioid misuse and abuse have claimed countless lives and represent the modern age’s most pressing drug crisis.
This presentation will outline the demographic, social, and economic impacts and contributing factors to the opioid epidemic in America. We will explore how a medical treatment has become a liability, and what the sociological roots are to the opioid problem in a population health perspective.
This discussion will cover an overview of the differences in individual and population paradigms when analyzing both upstream and downstream factors in a health issue. You’ll learn where you may fit into the bigger picture of addressing pain and the opioid crisis, with practical insights on how to engage with your community.
- Get the context and upstream factors in the opioid epidemic
- Understand the population vs individual perspective of health issues
- Learn implications for care and where health professionals can engage with social determinants
