DCCCA, the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services, and the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, along with the Kansas Prescription Drug and Opioid Advisory Committee present the conference.

Proposals are requested for workshops emphasizing knowledge-sharing, skills-building, practical application and audience engagement. Sessions should focus on emerging trends, building skills and knowledge, as well as advocacy for best practices to address the prescription drug and opioid crisis across disciplines. Proposals should fit into one of the following topic areas: prevention, provider education, prescribing, pain management, treatment, recovery, intervention, neonatal abstinence syndrome, naloxone, first response, criminal justice or law enforcement. Note: Presenters may submit proposals on other topics; however, they must relate to prescription drug and/or opioid misuse prevention. Conference registration will open on Sept.15, 2020.
