Data-Informed Care and Advocacy in Addiction Treatment

When:  Feb 9, 2023 from 14:00 to 15:00 (ET)
Measurement is fundamental to the provision of quality, effective, person-centered care for substance use disorders. Unfortunately, clear standards for measurement in addiction treatment do not exist, resulting in a decreased ability to examine treatment effectiveness, advocate for increased access to services and determine equitable methods for outreach. Recent improvements in both data science and technology have increased our collective ability to measure the process of addiction recovery.


Join us on February 9, at 2pm ET as the National Council for Mental Wellbeing's Substance Use welcomes Annie Peters and Nikki Soda of NAATP (National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers) to talk about a new initiative involving scalable, low-burden data sharing to engage providers from different systems of care to examine and improve their treatment outcomes collaboratively. This webinar will explore how data can be used to assist in the creation of policy for systemic change and how demonstrating the impact of treatment can be a powerful component of advocacy efforts to expand access to care.
