Prevention through Training & Technical Assistance


The goal of this project is to build upon existing opioid prevention efforts in NH in partnership with the State Opioid Response Team to increase rural community opportunities to engage in prevention activities such as the Chronic Pain Self-Management Program (CPSMP), online education and skill building, and training for healthcare professionals on prevention of opioid misuse and alternative pain management strategies for patient populations.
