Coalition on Addictions is a monthly event that provides a forum for networking, learning, and advocacy regarding the use and misuse of alcohol and other drugs. Participation is open to anyone interested in deepening their understanding of the challenges and opportunities in addressing substance use.
This month’s Coalition on Addictions topic is “The Impact of COVID-19 on Addiction Treatment Providers” by Dr. Patricia Cavazos, a Professor and Vice Chair for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in the Department of Psychiatry at Washington University School of Medicine.
In this presentation, we will better understand the impact of the pandemic on addiction treatment providers’ enjoyment and quality of work as well as their feelings of burnout and barriers to providing quality care.
