Opioids: The Crisis Upon Us

We are in the midst of an opioid crisis.
After years of funding cuts and reduced capacity, what is governmental public health expected to do? Pretty much everything. Unfortunately, our nation’s public health system is simply overwhelmed. While Congress, Governor’s, state legislatures, and city, county, and town councils are now throwing money at the problem, an overwhelmed system cannot effectively respond. What is needed is for organizations with capacity and expertise to partner with our governmental public health agencies.

The Public Health Foundation (PHF) is prepared to act now and into the future.
PHF has organizational development, performance improvement, opioid training, and community engagement expertise that can be leveraged to supplement what your organization, governmental public health agencies, and community partners are doing.

The right approach for your community is just a phone call away. Contact Ron Bialek at (202)218-4420 or
TRAIN Opioid Crisis Support Services and
GSA Purchasing Highlight New Offerings

Based on the critical needs of public health, population health, and healthcare partners, PHF recently launched a new suite of TRAIN Learning Network support services to help organizations leverage the vast capabilities of TRAIN. To address the opioid crisis, TRAIN now offers opioid-specific training support that provides your organization with targeted training plans, comprehensive reports and evaluations, data analysis, and more to efficiently meet your needs and fulfill funding requirements.

It is also easier than ever to procure TRAIN subscription and support services through the Government Services Administration (GSA) schedule.

Contact Patti Abshier today at (202)218-4427 or to join our community of partners and learn more about how TRAIN can support your organization and deliver an exceptional return on investment.
