Pennsylvania’s hospitals are on the cutting edge of research and collaborative solutions to address the opioid epidemic, but are we striking the right tone when we discuss it? Are we shying away from digging deeper due to feelings of guilt or stress as a result of public perception about clinicians’ roles in overprescribing? How do we talk about the incredible progress hospitals are making, while remaining compassionate to the incredible loss from drug overdoses?

Pricing Details: No charge

Webinar Objectives

Join us for When We Talk about Opioids, an hour-long session during which medical and communications experts will help hospital communications and clinical staff:

  • Assess the current state of coverage of the opioid crisis
  • Operationalize terminology to build a shared understanding of key vocabulary
  • Address issues related to guilt that some individuals feel when discussing opioids
  • Work on strategies to encourage open and honest conversations that foster dialogue about the tragedy of the opioid crisis, as well as the barriers to finding solutions
  • Describe the goals of the Opioid Learning Action Network to help tell the next chapter of this story


This program will be facilitated by Charles F. Barbera, chair, department of emergency medicine, Tower Health, and Rachel Moore, HAP’s director, media relations.
