In partnership with the National Governors Association, this webinar explored opportunities for state leadership on complex care. Speakers from the National Governors Association will expand on recommendations made in their 2017 report Building complex care programs: A road map for states.
Between 1999 and 2016, opioid overdose deaths increased fivefold in the United States. As the country struggles to address this crisis, the complex care field offers a unique approach. Complex care goes beyond a single disease state and has applicability to public health crises, including the current opioid epidemic. It is imperative that the complex care field understands the implications of the opioid epidemic for individuals with complex health and social needs, as well as its potential solutions.
