RI DOH
45:30
The slides can be viewed by clicking on the month.
Diane Dufresne
46:28
And do we have info on how many Naloxboxes/Narcan were used & prevented OD?
Diane Dufresne
47:35
I meant that for public places obviously, not residential
Josh Miller
47:52
I heard that Pheonix House may be closing, if so any plan to transitioning those patients to other providers?
Linda.Mahoney
52:22
We are working to not let that happen of course but if any agency has to close, agencies are ethically and legally obligated to transition all clients or remain open until treatment is completed
Shannon Quinn
52:24
what day is this?
Diane Dufresne
52:41

Thanks!
Enrique Newman
53:51
Thank you.
Amy McCarthy
54:00
If the Phoenix house were to close, that would be such a hardship as people waiting for detox beds has been increasing daily. So I hope it is a false rumor
Maria Bucci

If we want to participate in R4R, who should we contact?

Dennis and Bethany - for setting of public vs private, for non-fatal data Melissa Godfrey took a preliminary look at EMS data and the proportion of opioid-overdose related EMS runs looked pretty stable comparing Q1 and Q2 2020 to the same periods in 2019. We are working on finalizing that data and including additional months, and can report back. For Jan-Jun fatal data presentation next week, I can include a map showing the percent change increase/decrease by city/town for those with large enough numbers and can look at public vs private location, although I will note that typically the majority of fatal overdoses occur in private settings.

Jamie Goulet

Thanks, Tom! I'll put it on my mantle
Jonathan Goyer
01:05:23
Why do we not include Vivitrol outcomes/data?
Heather Seger
01:07:50
Thank you Heidi and Ben!
Colleen Daley Ndoye
01:10:05
What about people who are dying of overdoses who were not addicted to opioids? Meaning folks who were using other drugs that were laced with fentanyl? It would be useful to take them out of this data set, since opioid treatment is not applicable to them…
Diane Dufresne
01:10:39
Excellent point Colleen!
Linda Hurley
01:11:00
This is fascinating. Thank you. For a point of effective intervention, any thoughts on connecting those no longer accessing care to MAT OUD specialty providers? on bringing stakeholders to the table for a short term strategic approach ?
Rachel Scagos, RIDOH
01:11:59
Thanks Colleen. In the OSME data, we are able to understand what drugs contributed to the cause of death but we are not able to ascertain the intention of use of those drugs.
Heidi Driscoll
01:13:52
the prevention coalitions do ongoing work on the education of alternative pain therapies and questioning Docs if script is necessary
Ben Hallowell
01:24:25
Hi Linda Hurley, Those are definitely strategies we are thinking about using!
Mike Rizzi - CODAC
01:24:46
Hi … any information about overdoses among the unique participating individuals?
Colleen Daley Ndoye
01:25:32
Mike, we have dozens of reported overdoses being reversed among needle exchange clients that we have given Narcan to.
Carolina Roberts-Santana
01:26:18
That is great news @colleen
Maxwell Krieger
01:27:48
Great presentation, Tom!
Ryan Erickson
01:29:12
Very important point, Colleen--thank you for making it
Tom Coderre
01:29:49
Referring back to the OME/PDMP presentation - while this data can help us target activities, the response still needs to multi-faceted. So, even though those who had been in treatment in the past were a smaller subset, outreach to that subgroup is still important,
Mike Rizzi - CODAC
01:30:24
Thanks Colleen … just curious. I think it's important to know how the project has reduced actual overdoses in the participant population.
Carolina Roberts-Santana
01:31:14
:) that's great to hear :)
Dennis Bailer w/PWR
01:34:55
Thank you Tom, Ray and Colleen
Colleen Daley Ndoye
01:35:43
@Mike yes, in addition to our staff who have personally saved five clients lives from overdose, we collect reports from our clients about Narcan usage on a daily basis
Bethany Alexander
01:39:25
RICARES has a public comment !
Colleen Daley Ndoye
01:40:24
Sharing for the folks at RICARES who are doing this important event. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/words-matter-tickets-118695498431
Cathy Schultz
01:42:22
I think that the IOAD statewide effort was one of the first action steps that has been taken.
Mike Rizzi - CODAC
01:44:27
Agreed!!!
Colleen Daley Ndoye
01:44:28
Thank you Diego
Alexandra Collins
01:44:36
Yes, Diego - thank you!!
Lauren Conkey
01:45:14
Thanks Cathy! Yes - we convened the ROAD meeting at the end of last month; On RIDOH's end, we've also increased funding to street outreach, have met with the CODE communities to follow up from the larger meeting (still waiting for final proposals from a couple and can share more once we have a plan), and are working on the coordination piece for outreach across the state

01:47:06
The study conducted by Kim Paull gave us information on the population that we are missing. THis evidence should be guiding our interventions (co-occurring, alcohol primary served in inpatient settings for example)
Cathy Schultz
01:47:36
Thank you Lauren! That's great to hear.
Colleen Daley Ndoye
01:47:50
Thank you Sarah, we do see that the folks we serve are still overdosing, but generally not dying. But there are folks that we are not seeing and you are right that we cannot do it alone.
Tom Coderre
01:48:31
excellent points Sarah

Nicely stated Sarah
Bethany Alexander
01:49:40
thanks Sarah!
Michelle McKenzie
01:50:09
Thank you Diego and Sarah. I wonder if one way to reach folks that we are not currently reaching is to have many more providers (primariy care physicians and mental health providers) involved in harm reduction messaging.
