The Wright Center for GME, in coordination with the Society for PAs in Addiction Medicine, Marywood University, Geisinger Marworth, First Hospital Wyoming Valley, Commonwealth Health, Geisinger Wyoming Valley, James A. Casey House and El Rio Community Health Center (Tucson, AZ), hosted a Summit for physician assistants in Scranton, PA on April 20-21 of 2018. 

Throughout the Summit, presenters utilized real-time feedback capture technology via PollEverywhere and Google Forms as well as pencil-and-paper to capture qualitative and quantitative data (self-report, Likert scale) on participants’ perceptions and experiences in a variety of MAT-focused domains. Below are key findings from the Summit that may be of interest to HRSA and other organizations, both governmental and NGO, that are seeking to alleviate the crisis of opioid use disorder currently gripping the United States. 

This event was funded by a HRSA grant supplemental to a Primary Care Training Enhancement grant awarded to the Wright Center in partnership with AT Still University School of Osteopathic Medicine in Mesa, AZ.
