PRHI Facilitates Statewide Learning Network Session for the Opioid Use Disorder Centers of Excellence
PRHI and the University of Pittsburgh's School of Pharmacy's Program Evaluation and Research Unit (PERU) held a Learning Network session on April 17 for the 45 Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) Centers of Excellence (COEs) in the Commonwealth.
During the Harrisburg session, the COEs identified best practices from other COEs to inform their work, learned strategies to support peer specialists and Certified Recovery Specialists on their community-based care management teams, and identified strategies for engaging and retaining clients with OUD in treatment and comprehensive services.
The Learning Network sessions are part of the COE Technical Assistance Project, which is funded by the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services (DHS) to provide technical assistance to the Commonwealth's 45 COEs.
