State and Research University Partnerships in the Opioid Crisis
Continuing the dialogue around evidence-based policymaking discussed at last spring's APPAM Institutional Member Forum, Duke Policy Bridge at the Sanford School of Public Policy will host a 2018 topical forum on how to build research and policy partnerships around the prevailing national issue of opioid misuse.
Opioid misuse is a major epidemic across the nation. Local and state officials bear the burden of responses to the epidemic and need assistance coordinating research and resources. As observed through Duke's and other institution's collaborations with state government on this issue, research universities can provide valuable resources and expertise to government leaders.
This Institutional Forum, held at Duke University, will connect the worlds of research and policy across this escalating public health epidemic, and will be a valuable opportunity for academics, researchers, and policy officials to exchange best practices for research and policy support in the face of this crisis.
Break out topics are:
-Providing support services for children in households with substance use
-Assisting state officials with data science inquiries
-Embedding networks for treatment after overdose
-Providing a system of care in underserved and rural communities
