Opioid Crisis Response Initiative Leads to New Publications
Building capacity for collaborative research on opioid and other substance use disorders through the CTSA Program
The Opioid Crisis Response Initiative continues to promote collaborative, interdisciplinary research to address the opioid crisis through two recent publications. The Irving Institute for Clinical and Translational Research, home to Columbia University’s Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) Program hub, launched the Opioid Crisis Response key initiative in 2017 and continues this important work through the new Center for Healing of Opioid and Other Substance Use Disorders-Enhancing Intervention, Development and Implementation (CHOSEN).
Dr. Harold Pincus, Co-Director of the Irving Institute, and Dr. Jennifer Humensky are part of an interdisciplinary team across CTSA Program hubs that co-authored an article in the Journal of Clinical and Translational Science on leveraging CTSA Program network and opportunities from the National Institutes of Health to build capacity for best practices as this crisis evolves.
A second article published in the Journal of Clinical and Translational Science discusses the efforts and activities of our Opioid Crisis Response Initiative.
