Buprenorphine: Data-waived Providers’ Geographic Distribution in Arizona
Benjamin Brady, DrPH, and Bryna Koch, MPH
Register now

Buprenorphine is used to treat opioid use disorder. In order to prescribe it, however, professionals are required to take training and apply for a waiver. That requirement was set to be removed in January 2021, but President Biden withdrew that option. Dr. Brady and Ms. Koch will share the data regarding the geographic distribution of the providers' waivers and discuss best practice policies for the future in opioid use disorder.

Update: Even though the Biden administration removed some of the restrictions on medical professionals' ability to give buprenorphine, there is much to learn still from the geographic distribution of the waivers.

Ethical Challenges in Mental Health
September 17 & 18, 2021
9 am - noon each day, with optional breakout session immediately following the morning session

The COVID-19 pandemic has identified ethical challenges that arise when a health care system is stretched to its limits in providing care. Health professionals, social workers, and the public have faced these challenges. Healthcare professionals saw an increase in suicides or burnout,  and they have expressed concern at the lack of support for mental/behavioral health needs for their members. The dynamics of healthcare changed during the pandemic through its extensive reliance on telemedicine. Some challenges are persistent, such as questions of suitable research subjects, the use of genomic data, and difficulties placing children in treatment facilities. 

We've invited speakers to share their knowledge of the ethical challenges that can arise in the treatment, access to resources, stigmatization, and research of mental illness. We have applied for CEUs for this activity.

Funding and Conducting Drug Discovery & Development-Harvard

Friday Mar 13th, 2020
9:45am

Havard Health Policy and Bioethics Consortium is holding a webinar.The traditional model for drug development begins with publicly-funded science based in academic or government laboratories before private investors and for-profit pharmaceutical manufacturers become involved with their substantial expertise and resources. This for-profit drug development model has also been criticized for leaving certain public health issues unaddressed, particularly diseases prevalent in low-resource settings. What is the viability of other alternatives for funding drug discovery and development?
