  • Q&A: Expert Shares How VA Uses Academic Detailing to Reduce Opioid Abuse

    We recently sat down with Dr. Melissa Christopher, Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) national director of Academic Detailing Services, to discuss the work her team does to combat the national opioid crisis.

    Dr. Christopher, also a pharmacist, spoke more on the topic earlier this week during the 2017 Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE) Summit as a part of the “Approaches to Opioid Use Disorder: Getting Evidence-Based Practices to the Field in Federal Health Care and Prevention” panel.
