Presentation Slides
  New England ATTC team members Raymond Sanchez and Mika Salas have developed a new training, "Transitioning to Effective Online Training: Parts 1 – 3" in response to the COVID-19 pandemic requiring the workforce to transition to training virtually. This 3-part training is designed to help trainers use Zoom effectively to engage participants in virtual learning. It may be especially useful to ensure that trainings and technical assistance activities are accessible for individuals living in rural and underserved communities.  Part 1, “Getting to Know Zoom” is a pre-recorded session focused on basic to intermediate Zoom functions in order to build the foundational skills necessary to host, facilitate, and provide technical assistance for any virtual training, meeting, and/or conference. Part 2, “Advanced Zoom Functions and Best Practices” builds the specialized skills necessary to host and facilitate an engaging and secure virtual training. This training describes strategies, techniques, and resources to manage and engage participants in their ‘virtual classroom’ internal to Zoom. Part 3, “Engagement Strategies and Application” explores techniques and best practices to manage and engage participants in their virtual training sessions using both internal and external resources. Participants also have the opportunity to practice integrating these changes into their current curriculum. Due to the evolving nature of the Zoom platform, please note that these presentation slides are current as of May 26, 2021.  After this date, there may be updates to Zoom that are not reflected in these materials.

A common approach in learning any complex skill is to work with experts assisting in the development of competencies. Coaches observe practice in vivo and provide prompt feedback in a safe environment to guide practitioners to enhance fidelity to the model and retain skill levels in Motivational Interviewing (Miller & Moyers, 2021). The Mountain Plains, in collaboration with Motivational Interviewing (MI) subject matter experts, developed this opportunity to enhance practitioners’ skills and confidence in providing motivational strategies through individualized coaching. Coaching in specific MI approaches will be available to training participants following completion of a foundational MI course and a 9-week MI-Into Practice Enhanced Professional Learning Series. Basic MI concepts and skills to resolve ambivalence and conduct intentional conversations about change will be featured. This series of coaching is intended to help build confidence and practical MI knowledge and skills to support and address the behavioral factors impacting client change. Participants that have met the pre-requisites noted above will be invited to participate in 3 coaching sessions and will complete a pre- assessment to determine individualized coaching topics. Most sessions are individual. However, participants can be grouped in pairs or trios for effective interaction if preferred.    *Pre-requisites required

Presenters: Ali Jalali, PhD, Kathryn E. McCollister, PhD, Sean M. Murphy, PhD ABSTRACT:  This CHERISH (Center for Health Economics of Treatment Interventions for Substance Use Disorder, HCV, and HIV) sponsored seminar will provide an in-depth review of methods for conducting an economic evaluation alongside a clinical trial. Statistical methods frequently employed in applied health econometric studies (two-part, and generalized linear models, recycled predictions, mixed effects, longitudinal analysis, etc.), and best practices for data collection and analysis will be discussed, with examples using Stata statistical software; however, experience with Stata is not a prerequisite. This seminar is designed for investigators who have some familiarity with economic evaluations, but would benefit from a more detailed outline of the methods involved and examples of their application.

Presenters: Megan Schuler, PhD, and Beth Ann Griffin, PhD ABSTRACT: Motivated by the context of opioid policy research, this workshop will provide an overview of key methodological challenges faced when evaluating the effectiveness of state-level policy using annual state- level data, as well as potential solutions and practice guidelines. We will begin discussing the commonly used linear difference-in-difference (DID) model and then subsequently discuss DID extensions and alternative approaches (i.e., autoregressive models, non-linear models, doubly robust methods, synthetic controls). Methods will be demonstrated in STATA using an opioid policy case study.

Presenters: Rosalie Liccardo Pacula, PhD, and Rosanna Smart, PhD ABSTRACT: Numerous private and public agencies are collecting and reporting out information on state opioid policies to facilitate greater analysis and dissemination of state approaches for tackling the opioid epidemic. Most agencies focus on laws/statutes, which means that this is where the bulk of the research is happening. Definitions of many policies differ across some of the most commonly relied upon sources, which contributes to uncertainty regarding their impact. In this workshop, we will discuss some of the most common definitions being used for various policies, discuss how differences in assumptions regarding the meaning of “effective date” can have important implications regarding the likelihood of finding an impact through analysis, and discuss the importance of considering multiple policy domains.

The ATTC Network understands that words have power. A few ATTC products developed prior to 2017 may contain language that does not reflect the ATTCs’ current commitment to using affirming, person-first language. We appreciate your patience as we work to gradually update older materials. For more information about the importance of non-stigmatizing language, see “Destroying Addiction Stigma Once and For All: It’s Time” from the ATTC Network and “Changing Language to Change Care: Stigma and Substance Use Disorders” from the Providers Clinical Support System (PCSS).
