Opioids and the Workplace: An Employer Toolkit for Supporting Prevention, Treatment, and Recovery

April 18, 2019

Event Overview

The impact of the opioid crisis on our communities is strongly felt by employers every day. Issues of hiring adequate numbers of employees, presenteeism and absenteeism, work place safety, and the rising costs of health and workers compensation coverage are all challenges to the employer community. As the primary private sector purchasers of health care services, employers have the capacity to bring significant resources and focus to the opioid crisis fight. The KHC has developed an employer toolkit funded by the Kentucky Opioid Response Effort (KORE) to help employers learn best practices around using claims data, benefits, and workplace policies to support their employees in prevention, treatment, and recovery from opioid misuse. Join the KHC at this half day event to learn how implementing these best practices can positively impact your workforce and business.
