Webinar Description
Many federal and state substance use disorder funding opportunities necessitate community consortiums coming together to work on substance use issues. Despite this, there are few resources on how to facilitate and manage these groups to produce participation and bring real change to communities. This presentation will focus on the development and maintenance of opioid-specific consortiums. Specifically, the presentation will detail how to initiate a sustainable consortium and how to manage it effectively for optimal community engagement. The presentation will detail key communication strategies to facilitate group participation across the consortium and will disseminate leadership tactics for project directors and community facilitators to use in their own projects.
Educational Objectives
