Stigma Toward Harm Reduction Interventions for Opioid Use Disorder
This event is in the past.
The Wayne State University School of Social Work invites you to attend the Dissertation Defense of Doctoral Candidate Emily Pasman for the presentation of "Stigma Toward Harm Reduction Interventions for Opioid Use Disorder".
Harm reduction interventions such as overdose reversal medication distribution, safe consumption sites, and low-barrier treatment with agonist medications are shown to be highly effective strategies to reduce the negative consequences of nonmedical opioid use and opioid use disorder (OUD). However, stigma constitutes a substantial barrier to harm reduction service implementation. This three-article dissertation examines stigma toward harm reduction interventions for OUD and its impact on service provision. Specifically, Chapter Two examines the association between perceived stigma toward naloxone and naloxone training outcomes among naloxone training attendees; Chapter Three identifies factors influencing peer recovery coaches’ support for safe consumption sites; and Chapter Four explores how peer recovery coaches’ attitudes toward medications for OUD affect their interactions with clients.
