Confronting the Opioid Crisis: Challenges in Examining Policy Responses to a Wicked Problem

Thursday 5/30 12:00PM - 1:00PM

The opioid crisis is a public health emergency, responsible for tens of thousands of deaths annually, s well as opioid-related morbidity among the millions suffering from opioid use disordr, common comorbid disorders such as Hepatitis C and HIV, and related disorders such as neonatal opioid withdrawal syndrome. Policymakers have responded at both the federal and state level, but effective responses are challenged by the evolving nature of the crisis. This seminar will examine some of the challenges in implementing and evaluating policies addressing the opioid crisis, and discussing opportunities for future approaches to the evolving crisis.
