Sponsored and Hosted By:
California Department of Health Care Services (CA DHCS), Opioid and Stimulant Implementation Support-Training and Technical Assistance (OASIS-TTA)-MAT Expansion Project, UCLA Integrated Substance Abuse Programs (UCLA ISAP), California Institute for Behavioral Health Solutions (CIBHS), and Pacific Southwest Addiction Technology Transfer Center (PSATTC), HHS Region 9.

As overdose deaths continue to rise, patient access to medications for addiction treatment (MAT) and related services is key to reversing this trend. According to data from the California Department of Public Health, from Q1 2019 to Q4 2020 the rate of opioid overdose deaths has more than doubled. While many agencies have received grant funding to build MAT programs, there are concerns about sustainability when those funds are no longer available. This four part webinar series will provide participants with information and tools to help maintain and sustain MAT programs that provide lifesaving medications and interventions for opioid use disorder. This first session will review the impact of patient dropout on program financing and discuss strategies that can improve engagement and retention.
At the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:
1. Identify at least two (2) factors that influence client engagement and retention in care.
2. Recognize at least two (2) ways that engagement and retention factors may have a bearing on the patient experience in their own programs or practices through the use of simple flowcharting and data collection tools.
3. Propose at least three (3) specific targeted process improvements based on client flow data.
Future topics will include:
o Community Resources for Recovery (March 24th, 2022, 10am-11am PDT)
o Care Management (May 19th, 2022, 10am-11am PDT)
o Medi-Cal (July 21st, 2022, 10am-11am PDT)
