At CHI St. Gabriel’s Health in Little Falls, Minn. — recipient of the 2017 AHA NOVA Award — a clinic-based, multi-disciplinary team works toward reducing narcotic and opioid use through care plans and patient visits. A community task force works to change opioid prescribing practices to monitor use and reach all opioid-using patients. On Monday, June 25 from 10-11 am at the Rural Hospital Leadership Conference, you will have the opportunity to learn how this award-winning rural health system is mobilizing its community to tackle the opioid crisis.
Collaborative partners with the hospital and its family medical center include public health officials, the sheriff’s office, police department, long-term care facilities and prevention groups, and local medical assistance provider South Country Health Alliance.
