2018 Demystifying Medicine: The opioid epidemic: how, where, and what can be done? Air date: Tuesday, April 17, 2018, 4:00:00 PM Category: Demystifying Medicine Runtime: 01:49:03 Description: Demystifying Medicine Overdose deaths from opioid use have nearly quadrupled since the year 2000, and opioids now kill more people each year in the United States than guns or car accidents. We know how the opioid crisis came to be; we know what opioids do to the brain. Now we must put our heads together to curb the epidemic fast. Two of the most prominent figures in the national opioid discussion — NIDA Director Nora Volkow, M.D., Ph.D., and NINDS Director Walter Koroshetz, M.D. — describe in detail the state of the opioid crisis and what NIH is doing about it. Come to the lecture to get plugged in to one of the most pressing public health emergencies of our times. Every day, more than 115 Americans die after overdosing on opioids, a four-fold increase since 2000, and the numbers continue to climb. Toward this effort, NIH has nearly doubled funding for research on pain and on opioid misuse and addiction from approximately $600 million in fiscal year 2016 to $1.1 billion in fiscal year 2018, made possible from a funding boost by Congress. The focus of NIH's efforts centers on ways to reduce the over prescription of opioids, accelerate development of effective non-opioid therapies for pain, and provide more flexible options for treating opioid addiction. This lecture describes the state of the crisis, the state of our efforts, and how you can be a part of the solution. The Demystifying Medicine Lecture Series is designed to help bridge the gap between advances in biology and their applications to major human diseases. The lectures include presentations of patients, pathology, diagnosis, and therapy in the context of major diseases and current research. All clinicians, trainees including fellows, medical students, Ph.D. students, and other healthcare and research professionals are welcome to attend.

On July 1-2, the Precision Medicine Initiative (PMI) Working Group of the Advisory Committee to the NIH Director (ACD) held a public workshop on participant engagement and health equity as they relate to the proposed PMI national research cohort. The workshop focused on the design of an inclusive cohort, building and sustaining public trust, direct-from-participant data provision, and effective and active participant engagement characteristics of a national research cohort of one million or more volunteers. The workshop built on the big science questions developed during the April 28–29 workshop at the NIH, digital health data perspectives shared during the May 28-29 workshop, and information on the strategies to address community engagement and health disparities in a large national research cohort gathered from stakeholders through a request for information. The workshop took place on the National Institutes of Health campus in Bethesda, Maryland, and was videocast. A full list of workshops being convened by the ACD PMI Working Group is available on the Events page of the NIH PMI website.

For the legal concept, see Emergency Aid Doctrine Disaster management (or emergency management) is the effort of communities or businesses to plan for and coordinate all personal and materials required to either mitigate the effects of, or recover from, natural or man-made disasters, or acts of terrorism. Disaster management does not avert or eliminate the threats, although their study is an important part of the field. Events covered by disaster management include acts of terrorism, industrial sabotage, fire, natural disasters (such as earthquakes, hurricanes, etc.), public disorder, industrial accidents, and communication failures.

Perceptions, Priorities and Public Finance: How Values and Communications Shape Support for Adaptation and Funding 1.25 CM. Claim CM here: http://bit.ly/2xlYXiZ Better understanding of how stakeholder values and beliefs influence decision making is required to improve local resiliency planning and achieve positive outcomes. Insights from an international stakeholder engagement study METROPOLE, funded by the National Science Foundation, and a multi-year initiative to establish funding for the San Francisco Bay Restoration Authority offer planners new perspectives on how decision makers and stakeholders value and perceive adaption solutions and public finance tools. The METROPOLE research identified similar patterns in each of the three countries for preferences for certain adaptation options and finance tools over others. Additional analysis links these patterns to new social science research on values, behavior and cognitive factors for stakeholder leaders. On June 7, 2016, residents of the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area passed Measure AA, the San Francisco Bay Clean Water, Pollution Prevention and Habitat Restoration Measure. The $12 a year parcel tax will raise approximately $500 million over 20 years to support habitat restoration to adapt the Bay ecosystem to climate change, and protect at-risk shoreline communities and infrastructure from flooding. The speakers offer insights for developing plans and communicating benefits, short-term actions and time-frames, and linking financial policy and mechanisms to generate support for restoration and adaptation.

Building the Evidence Base for Disaster Risk Reduction for Health Systems in Response to Natural Disasters: This is the first in a series of webinars, workshops, pilot studies and regional preparedness exercises to discuss the current state and future direction of critical healthcare infrastructure modeling for disaster events. This series is co-sponsored by the National Center for Disaster Medicine and Public Health (NCDMPH), National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST), and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) with coordination through the Global Change Research Program. The goal is to develop a platform for integrating extreme event forecasts, health risk/impact assessment and population simulations, critical infrastructure (electrical, water, transportation, communication) impact and response models, health care facility-specific vulnerability and failure assessments, and health system/patient flow responses. Many of these components exist individually at present, but they have not been combined. The integration of these models is intended to create a more resilient regional health care system by better understanding critical tipping points in the vulnerability of current health systems during natural and human disasters and build an evidence base for specific interventions.

Mayor Muriel Bowser releases her Year Two Transition Plan Accountability Report. The report shows that in the Bowser Administration’s first two years in office, the Mayor has either delivered, launched or prepared to launch 94% of the promises she committed to during the 2014/2015 Mayoral transition. The report delivers on Mayor Bowser’s commitment to transparency and accountability, and offers a comprehensive look into the Administration’s goals and priorities. In highlighting her Administration’s accomplishments, Mayor Bowser placed a special focus on Washington, DC’s values and her commitment to defending those values. “We are Washington, DC and we embrace our diversity, strive to be more inclusive, and to grow and spread our prosperity to all eight wards. In 2017, we will promote and defend our progressive values and empower ourselves and fellow Washingtonians for the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead,” said Mayor Bowser. Over the past two years, 11% of the Mayor’s 131 goals have been completed, 81% have launched and are currently being implemented, and 2% are in the planning phases. Altogether, the Administration is delivering on 94% of the Mayor’s priorities. Examples of promises that have been completed include: - Completed the distribution of body-worn cameras to all MPD patrol officers - Resumed DNA testing at the District’s Crime Lab - Announced increase to HPAP assistance from $50,000 to $80,000 for new homebuyers - Continued investment in Housing Production Trust Fund at $100 million annually - Obligated $106 million of HPTF to produce or preserve more than 1,200 affordable housing units in all 8 wards - 5,300 affordable housing units — capable of housing nearly 12,000 District residents — are in the development pipeline “While there is still much more work to do, I am proud of what my Administration has accomplished over the past two years,” said Mayor Bowser. “Violent crime and property crime are down, graduation and enrollment rates are up, and our population is the highest it’s been in forty years. I promised that we would make our streets safer and our neighborhoods stronger, and the Accountability Report shows that we are doing just that.” The Year Two Transition Plan Accountability Report can be viewed HERE: http://mayor.dc.gov/node/1211650 The Year One Transition Plan Accountability Report can be viewed HERE: http://mayor.dc.gov/node/1133976

On September 8, 2015, the United States entered into a proposed settlement agreement with the State of Oregon to vindicate the civil rights of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) who are unnecessarily segregated in sheltered workshops, or at risk of such unnecessary segregation. The settlement agreement with Oregon resolves a class action lawsuit by private plaintiffs in which the Department of Justice moved to intervene in May 2013. The lawsuit alleged that the State's employment service system over-relied on segregated sheltered workshops to the exclusion of integrated alternatives, such as supported employment services, and placed individuals, including youth, at risk of entering sheltered workshops. As a result of the proposed settlement, over the next seven years, 1,115 working-age individuals with I/DD, who are currently being served in segregated sheltered workshops, will have opportunities to work in real jobs at competitive wages. Additionally, at least 4,900 youth ages 14 - 24 will receive supported employment services designed to assist them to choose, prepare for, get, and keep work in a typical work setting. Half of the youth served will receive, at a minimum, an Individual Plan for Employment through the State's Office of Vocational Rehabilitation Services. Correspondingly, the State will reduce its reliance on sheltered workshops and implement policies and capacity-building strategies to improve the employment system to increase access to competitive integrated employment and the opportunity for people with I/DD to work the maximum number of hours consistent with their abilities and preferences. Join this webinar to hear directly from representatives from the U.S. Department of Justice about the elements of the settlement agreement, as well as from stakeholders in the state of Oregon who will be positively impacted by these developments.
