WSHA provider toolkit supports hospital substance misuse prevention efforts

May 17, 2024

Preventing substance misuse is the most effective strategy in reducing the risk of developing a substance use disorder. Mental Health Awareness month, and specifically National Prevention Week May 12-18,  provides the perfect opportunity to consider how your hospital can participate in prevention efforts.
WSHA has a number of resources to support this work, including the:

  • Starts with One education campaign, developed in partnership with the Washington State Healthcare Authority.
  •  WSHA Provider Toolkit, is a free resource designed with feedback from WSHA members with educational material on responsible opioid use, safe medication storage and disposal, and talking with patients about opioid use.
