Training opportunities for clinical psychology doctoral trainees, psychology faculty and community health partners will be expanded by providing:
- ScalingUP-hosted, expert training seminars each year on topics that are relevant to combatting the crisis;
- OUD-specific infusions within the five core curriculum courses;
- Funded Clinical Placements for four doctoral psychology trainees each year to provide interdisciplinary OUD assessment and treatment services within Family Care Health Centers, and interdisciplinary telehealth OUD assessment and treatment services at Chestnut Health Systems, both of which are primary care settings serving underserved members of the community;
- OUD prevention through increased access to chronic pain management by engaging with an interdisciplinary chronic pain management team (primary care physician, nurse care manager, physical therapy, chiropractic care, nutritionist, psychiatric pharmacist, community health worker, and yoga) that offers a stepped care model for pain management at Family Care Health Centers;
- Increased access to lifesaving overdose-reversing drugs by training doctoral clinical psychology students in the emergency administration of naloxone and strategies for working with patients and their concerned significant others to develop an overdose plan.
