TITLE: INTERACTING WITH THE TREATMENT SYSTEM: PERSPECTIVES FROM FAMILY MEMBERS AND TREATMENT PROVIDERS

Presenter: Alicia S. Ventura, MPH – Director of Special Projects and Research, Grayken Center for Addiction, Boston Medical Center Boston, USA

Description: This Webinar will describe and outline the results from a recently completed qualitative study, which looked at family members impacted by addiction and investigated their experiences interacting with treatment systems for both them and their loved ones. The study also included a provider component which explored barriers to including the family in care, from the perspective of the addiction care team. Both provider and family member perspectives will be examined and conclusions drawn over how to make treatment more ‘family-inclusive’.
