Opioid and Substance Abuse Disorder Resources: NYACP Members can earn a $500 honorarium

The College has partnered with the American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry (AAAP) and a coalition of national professional organizations on two SAMHSA-funded initiatives, the Provider Clinical Support System (PCSS) and Opioid Response Network programs, to combat the opioid crisis.  As a part of these programs, ACP hosted a virtual quality improvement chronic pain leadership-training program in May of 2019, due to the success of this event, we have decided to offer a second round of training, details of which are below:

  •  A 2 hour webinar providing an overview on how to apply ACP’s QI methodology to improve chronic pain management and safe opioid prescribing on November 20, 2019.
  •  A series of 4 coaching calls with expert QI faculty to support implementation of a QI project focused on chronic pain management through January 2020.
  •  Participants will be asked to submit a summary report of program outcomes to ACP no later than January 31, 2020.

 Interested participants should apply through the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PBMTPHP

  • Program Application Criteria: New participants may apply (participation in the May virtual training disqualifies you from applying again)
  • A $500 honorarium will be provided to selected participants
