Rachael, can someone from DOH come to our monthly Homeless Street Outreach meeting to present the campaign so we can make sure all those outreach workers have Narcan too?

What are overdose prevention protocols?
Joshua Miller
51:05
Anything about promotion of expanding the initiation of MAT in the ED?
Jesse Yedinak (she/her)
51:08
I would be curious how these recommendations align with our larger Task Force Plan & Pillars. The Plan has a lot of metrics that might align here
McCormick, Meghan E.
52:40
Senator Miller, that did not come up at either October or December meeting, but I believe it has been a recommendation in the past.
Elizabeth Samuels
52:47
Senator Miller— we are conducting an enhanced implementation effort for ED buprenorphine in all RI EDs
Elizabeth Samuels
52:51
Happy to discuss at greater length
Joanne Bilotta
53:49
The RI Business Group on Health can assist with recruiting more employers to become recovery friendly workplaces. There is still a significant issue with stigma in the business community that needs to be addressed in order for recruitment to be successful.
Karen Jeffreys
57:30
And if you are interested in participating in a racial justice discussion about race being a social construct not a biological one please join us for a viewing of the PBS special about that in February. https://racialjusticefeb2021.eventbrite.com

I’ve attended several of Jon’s Words Matter presentations. I’d like to have him do a training for CODAC.
Jonathan Goyer
01:15:16
Waiving court fees is a fantastic way to help people to sustain a quality life in long-term recovery! Might I also suggest integrating DMV/Traffic Tribunal costs associated with lifting a suspension for driver's licenses as well.
Susan Jacobsen (her/hers)
01:15:33
Wow! How do we get these tools to more providers?
Mike O'Neill
01:16:15
Great resource! Wish that was around 20 years ago
Joshua Miller
01:16:49
would presenting this as to be expanded as legislation help?
Michelle McKenzie
01:16:52

Linda.Mahoney RI- BHDDH
01:18:11

Finally, hope for a break thru the racial barrier to treatment!
Diane Dufresne
01:27:12
And thankfully, we have Dr. Etienne (a Black physician) as Medical Director at Roger Williams In-Pt Detox!
Karen Jeffreys
01:27:28
Thanks for making it better for our clients! So critical for us all to acknowledge the structural racism that underlies all our systems AND we all need to work to break down these barriers for communities of color.
kate.noveau
01:27:43
I second this Diane - Dr Etienne is a gem!
Heather Seger
01:27:55
Dr E is the best :)
Diane Dufresne
01:28:24
And a close friend of mine also....he is awesome!
Joshua Miller
01:30:18
do we know how many letters were written on behalf of patients vs how many had a similar case for whom the letters may have been effective?
Mike Rizzi
01:33:29
regarding Linda's question...has this project excluded or included the role, history, efficacy, and success of methadone and vivitrol in a broad-based solution ?
Jonathan Goyer
01:37:43
Thank you, Rahul! Kudos for helping the medical community to identify their role in patient advocacy and supporting them in that role with this resource. Huge progress!
Tom Coderre
01:38:57
Have you had conversations with ASAM or AMA about expanding this regionally or nationally? This is so good, it needs to be replicated - thank you so much!
Linda.Mahoney RI- BHDDH
01:39:20
We can take this information to a wider scope of treatment and recovery advocates via recovery mapping as a resource
Susan Jacobsen (her/hers)
01:39:28
Is there a screening tool you use?
Andrew.Stone
01:39:30
I am the current president of RISAM I will forward to ASAM
Karen Jeffreys
01:40:33
Similar findings for the RI Coalition for the Homeless legal clinic intervention with Megan Smith at the House of Hope. The advocacy at court for those living on the streets changed the path for constituents!
Andrew.Stone
01:41:08
We hope to invite Dr. Vanjani to the next combined RISAM / RIPS meeting.
Linda Hurley
01:41:24
Director_ if there is time may I speak to the Boston Globe article ?
Jonathan Goyer
01:42:33
I think we have some new money laying around via SAMHSA.....evalutation and/or expansion of this project is something I would strongly suggest.
Karen Jeffreys
01:43:20
Great idea Jonathan! Let’s expand!
Jill Glickman
01:44:01
I have forwarded the link to CTC-RI to share with the Community Health Teams across the state working as an extension of primary care to address BH and SDOH patient needs.
Tom Coderre
01:44:06
Let's not wait 6 months - maybe we can find resources to get this done in a third of that time
Gordon Smith
01:44:54
I know the AMA well and will share this information with their Opioid Task Force which continues to be chaired by Patricia Harris, M.D.
Tom Coderre
01:46:07
thanks you Gordon, happy to help in any way i can, let me know how after you talk to Pat
Annajane Yolken (she/her)
01:49:41
I have a public comment that I can elaborate on - The Coalition To Save Lives will be hosting a candlelight vigil and car funeral procession to honor those who we have lost from overdose in 2020, as well as to urge policymakers to take on evidence-based policies (including those suggested by this task force). The event will be Sunday Jan 24 at 2pm, we will start at 10 Elmwood Ave in Providence and drive to the statehouse for a short speaking program
Annajane Yolken (she/her)
01:49:55
(Everything will be outside, distanced, and masked)
Rahul
01:49:55
Thanks all! I would love to talk about how to get this out. IT's definitely not my specialty. I'm at 401-410-4011 and rahul_vanjani@brown.edu.
Rahul
01:49:59
So excited!
Joanne Bilotta
01:50:35
