Space is still available for the next Healthy People 2030 webinar: Substance Misuse Prevention Strategies to Improve Public Health: A Focus on State Practices. This webinar will take place on Wednesday, December 6 from 2:00 to 3:00 pm ET. To register, please visit the Healthy People 2030 Webinar Series Registration page. Continuing Education Credits* (CEs) are available.
During this one-hour event, ODPHP and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics will present on the webinar’s three featured objectives related to substance misuse. Additionally, New York State Department of Health will present on their efforts to address substance misuse through their state health improvement plan.
The three Healthy People 2030 objectives to be featured during the webinar include:
- MPS-02: Reduce emergency department visits related to nonmedical use of prescription opioids Many medication-related emergency department visits involve nonmedical use of prescription opioids. Prescribing the lowest possible dose of opioids and treating pain with non-opioid medications can help reduce nonmedical use of prescription opioids. In addition, increasing treatment of opioid use disorder and making naloxone more widely available to treat acute overdoses can help reduce emergency department visits for nonmedical use of prescription opioids.
- SDOH-05: Reduce the proportion of children with a parent or guardian who has served time in jail or prison
Children with a parent or guardian who has served time in jail are more likely to live in poverty, experience homelessness, and witness domestic violence. They’re also more likely to have speech, attention, and behavior problems — and to eventually serve time in jail themselves. Children from certain racial/ethnic groups and from families with lower income levels are more likely to have a parent who has served time in jail. Policies that support parents and teach parenting skills may have a positive impact on children with a parent who has served time in jail. Reentry programs that include job placement and housing may also benefit the children of people who have been in jail.
- SU-11: Reduce the proportion of motor vehicle crash deaths that involve a drunk driver
Driving while drunk is a main cause of traffic-related deaths in the United States. Effective interventions to reduce motor vehicle crash deaths that involve alcohol include sobriety checkpoints, mass media campaigns, and laws that revoke or suspend the licenses of people convicted of drunk driving.
