Health Economic Research Supporting the U.S. Response to the Opioid Crisis: Defining Cost Effective Interventions and Implementation Strategies

Kathryn McCollister, Phd
University of Miami, Miller School of Medicine

ABSTRACT:
As the U.S. continues to grapple with the opioid epidemic, the National Institutes of Health, in collaboration with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, has recently launched several funding initiatives tasked with identifying, testing, and implementing evidence-based strategies to significantly reduce overdose fatalities and other negative consequences associated with opioid use disorders (OUD). Health economics research is highlighted as an important component to these new studies; specifically, the need for economic data informing resource allocation, cost effectiveness, and financing mechanisms that support the feasibility and sustainability of recommended strategies. This talk will describe the current state of knowledge on the cost effectiveness of treatment interventions and other strategies for OUD as well as relatively new questions relating to the economics of implementation at a broader community- or systems-level.

Applying lessons learned from global mental health to the opioid crisis

Jessica Magidson, Phd
Department of Psychology
University of Maryland

ABSTRACT:
The current opioid crisis in the United States has been considered an epidemic of poor access to care . Similar to the shortage of trained providers to prescribe medications to treat opioid use disorder (OUD), there is a severe shortage of trained providers to meet the behavioral health needs of patients with OUD. This talk will draw from global mental health models of task sharing to discuss how lessons learned from scaling up evidence-based interventions with lay health workers in low and middle-income countries can inform efforts to increase access to behavioral health care for patients with OUD in the US. Research will be presented using peer recovery coach models to integrate substance use treatment into HIV care in South Africa and to promote linkage and retention in OUD care locally.
