Closing the Gaps in Opioid Use Disorder Research, Policy and Practice: Conference Proceedings


On June 9, 2017, a conference sponsored by the Center for Health Economics of Treatment Interventions for Substance Use Disorder, HCV, and HIV (CHERISH) and a NIDA-funded National Center of Excellence was held at the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics of the University of Pennsylvania, with the goal of addressing the gaps in evidence-based substance use disorder policy and practice.

This meeting report, contributed to by PISC Advisory Board member Daniel Polsky and PISC Executive Board member Zachary Meisel, describes how the conference's aims (fostering new relationships between researchers and policymakers through collaboration and generating evidence-based policy recommendations) and themes (quality of treatment, continuity of care, opioid prescribing and pain management, and consumer engagement) make it an effective model to develop beneficial relationships among researchers, clinicians, and policymakers.
