Cultural Humility Series: Addressing Opioid Use Disorder in Veterans from BIPOC Communities

This program is designed to enhance delivery of equitable and culturally informed care for veterans from Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) communities in need of opioid use disorder (OUD) treatment. The program will begin with an overview of common values, terms, and characteristics of the military population, while also incorporating a nuanced understanding of the inequities, historical and current, affecting veterans from Black, Indigenous, and Peoples of Color (BIPOC) communities. Presentations will also explore a multitude of factors contributing to health inequities in remission and recovery, including racist policies and stigmas in addiction treatment, and considerations of social and structural determinants of health when caring for patients with OUD.
