TAKING RESPONSIBILITY: Reversing the Overdose Epidemic in Missouri

Presenter(s): Drew Shoemaker, MD and Jennifer Byrne, LCSW, CADC, CCTP

Fatal and non-fatal drug overdoses are an ongoing national epidemic. As we confront the evolving nature of the overdose epidemic it has become apparent that prescription opioids are not the only contributor Illicitly manufactured fentanyl and fentanyl analogs are now the primary drivers of the epidemic of opioid use and opioid related overdose. CDC data reported approximately 72,000 overdose deaths nationally in 2019 followed by an increase at the end of 2020 to just over 90,000. We must do better. Missouri is working hard to address the epidemic. This physician toolkit, presented by the Missouri State Medical Association (MSMA) and the American Medical Association (AMA) provides state and national resources and tools for Missouri physicians to use to help address overdose prevention, substance use and substance use disorder, harm reduction, safe opioid prescribing and management, and provide better care for pain.

Digital Therapeutics for Substance Use Disorders: Research Priorities and Clinical Validation

Presenter(s): Will M. Aklin, PhD

There are effective treatments for Substance Use Disorders (SUDs), though they do not work for all patients and efficacy decreases over the long-term. As evidenced during the COVID-19 pandemic, traditional methods of delivering treatment have limitations and can be difficult or even impossible to access. Thus, there is an urgent need for new therapeutic options. This webinar will highlight research to support the development of safe and effective Digital Therapeutics (DTx), discuss strategies to accelerate their delivery to patients, and improve SUD treatment outcomes. DTx, a subset of digital health, consists of high-quality software programs to prevent, manage, or treat medical conditions. DTx that meet the definition of a medical device go through an FDA regulatory review process to be legally marketed in the US. The ultimate goal of this webinar is to illuminate NIH-research priorities and clinically validated DTx options for patients with SUDs.
