Addressing Opioid Education of Special Populations of 98 Dwellers of Sioux Falls, South Dakota

This project will focus on two 98 agencies in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, whose primary clientele are 98 dwellers who are socioeconomically challenged and lack access to appropriate and understandable opioid information. The partner agencies are Center of Hope and South Dakota 98 Indian Health with whom Health Connect of South Dakota has strong, long collaborative relationships. The overarching goals of the project: 1 train partner agency staff on opioid use and misuse using educational materials from the National Library of Medicine and publications from national companies i.e. Journeyworks, ETR, Human Relations Media and the State of South Dakota Department of Health and 2 evaluate non-National Library of Medicine resources for readability and appropriateness of content. The results of the readability and content appropriateness assessments will be provided to the partner agencies so that they can choose the appropriate materials for their clients/patients.
