Addressing the Stigma Surrounding Substance Use Disorder Through Connections

Feb 04, 2020  02:00 PM  EST


The opioid epidemic is overwhelming and many are searching for how to positively influence the best outcomes. What if we go back to nursing basics and think about how connections may be the best first step in addressing this epidemic? Perhaps guiding a workforce of nurses to think about perceptions around substance use disorder and changing the conversation to shift blame may produce better outcomes for those afflicted by this epidemic. This is part 3 of our Patient Engagement Learning Series.
