Becoming a Harm Reductionist (webinar)

Callan Fockele, MD

Presenter: Callan Fockele, MD, MS, Harborview Medical Center
December 2021

This presentation described Dr. Fockele's current work using community-based participatory research to implement harm reduction inside and outside the emergency department. She focused on her recent partnership with Public Health—Seattle & King County, the Addictions, Drug & Alcohol Institute, the Harm Reduction Research & Treatment Center, and the Public Defender Association to establish the Council of Expert Advisors on Drug Use (CEADU), which is composed of local people with lived experience. As a co-investigator on two pilot projects inspired by the passage of Washington State Senate Bill 5476, Dr. Fockele is working with CEADU to create an implementation toolkit that integrates take-home naloxone, buprenorphine treatment, and HIV/hepatitis C testing into first-responder programs while also adapting the Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) model to improve encounters between first responders and people who use drugs.
