The KY Opioid Overdose Prevention Education Network (KY-OPEN) is an educational series focused on bringing together Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) clinical experts and local community participants to share information and address questions about opioid use disorder. KY-OPEN met weekly from January 2021 to December 2023 to discuss  effective treatment practices, address common co-morbidities and treatment in special populations, and highlight innovative strategies to expand access to OUD care. KY-OPEN also created several educational resources that address emerging issues related to substance use disorder. While KY-OPEN is no longer hosting live events, see the information below to access all of the previous recordings and additional educational content generated from KY-OPEN and the HEALing Communities Study.
