The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Helping to End Addiction Long-termSM Initiative has launched an Idea Exchange, Moving HEAL Research into Action, to gather public input. Ideas from diverse stakeholders will shape future directions for the initiative and the way research results are shared with communities. The Idea Exchange aims to crowdsource solutions to improve pain management and the prevention and treatment of opioid misuse and addiction. All are invited to participate, including the many individuals on the front lines of the opioid crisis (e.g., treatment providers, advocates and families, law enforcement professionals, first responders, policymakers, and government health officials). The comment period is open from April 6 to June 1, 2021.
Individuals must register to share ideas. Thank you for sharing your input on how to optimize science-based solutions for the opioid crisis.
