Overview

Kentucky has the 5th highest drug overdose death rate in the US; impacting the Commonwealth, and local communities as a result of economic disparities, previous overprescribing, substance use, and social determinants.

Healthcare providers encounter patients seeking prescription or illicit drugs in all type of clinical settings and routinely provide 24-hour care to patients in hospital. They face complex clinical and personal situations that require a high level of clinical competence, expertise, and skill. In addition, healthcare providers, the KYODCP, and KIPRC provide prevention services with minimal resources. Fifty percent of all Kentuckians are on public assistance, with an average per capita income of around $27,500.

This conference will discuss addiction as a disease, appropriate opioid prescribing and stewardship, and prescription drug monitoring program patient report updates. David Sheff, author of Beautiful Boy recently shown in theaters, will be the keynote speaker and will provide insight into family relationships during active addiction and recovery.
