  • Describe indications for academic detailing and process for identifying detailers
  • Identify supporting resources and tools for implementing evidence-based interventions into their care setting

Guest Speaker:

Randy Grimes lived as everyone’s all-American—with a successful 10-year career for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. But pain took over, and the prescription pills used to treat chronic injuries eventually led to playing in blackouts. When Randy’s career ended, the pills continued—feeding an opioid addiction that would last 20+ years and erode his identity, health and family. When addiction claimed the life of a close friend, Randy finally found the courage to raise his hand and ask for help. This single decision reclaimed Randy’s life. Today, Randy is a motivational speaker, founder of Pro Athletes in Recovery, addiction and mental health advocate, and top-selling author.

Audience:

Any organization, coalition or individual interested in improving opioid misuse, reducing stigma and implementing evidence based interventions
