Ensuring Equitable Care: Understanding the Role of Trauma and Stigma in the Lives of Residents with a History of Addiction and Chronic Pain

IPRO and the Opioid Response Network (ORN) have developed an education series for use by nursing home staff educators. Our goal is to provide a resource to nursing homes/medical rehabilitation centers that supports your commitment to ensure all residents/patients receive equitable care. This education series will address the often missed, yet impactful issues of addiction, trauma, stigma, and chronic pain management. 

This pre-packaged, two-month, 6 module education series includes:

  • 3 live webinars, with Delores Blackwell, PhD (before, during and after the series) for educators to review the education materials supplied and receive support in presenting the content.
  • Educational content for all staff in a series of 6 education sessions designed to last 25-30 minutes each. Included for each session:
    • 6 prerecorded modules (15 minutes)
    • Written materials to support discussion led by the educator (10-15 minutes)

It is strongly recommended that the series be conducted over 6 consecutive weeks. Note: Materials can be used at any time.

Join us for the first live session with Dr. Blackwell on Wednesday, June 28, 2023, at 1 pm.
