Academic detailing involves pharmacists with the Kentucky Pharmacists Association providing key messages on topics related to safe prescribing practices, preventing fatal overdose in patients, using non-stigmatizing language with patients, hepatitis C testing, appropriate interventions to improve access to treatment, and naloxone use and replacement.
Program manager Kristen Blankenbecler, PharmD, is available to provide education to clinicians on safer opioid prescribing, treatment of opioid use disorder, and harm reduction. Visits are always available virtually and in-persons visits will hopefully be possible soon.
To set up a training, contact Kristen via email or phone (502-227-2303).
