Opioid Webinar Series Part 4: Overcoming Stigma of Opioid Use Disorder: Lessons for Providers, Payers, Policymakers, and the Healthcare Community at Large
March 28, 2019, 12 to 1 p.m. EST – This is the fourth webinar in a series about addressing the opioid crisis in America. The stigma associated with opioid use disorder impacts not only individuals seeking treatment, it also colors the attitudes of payers and providers charged with helping those struggling with addiction. The results can be devastating, with individuals avoiding care, providers refusing to administer certain treatments – including the Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) – and both patients and their families left with limited options.
During this webinar, HMA experts will outline the barriers to effective treatment caused by the stigma of opioid use disorder. Speakers will also offer a series of concrete steps that payers and providers can take to ensure patients are seeking and receiving the best treatment options available.
