WEBINAR: Using the National Hospital Care Survey (NHCS) to Identify Opioid-Related Hospital Visits
Event Date and Time:
Tuesday, June 19, 2018 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm
"NCHS is currently recruiting a nationally representative sample of hospitals around the Nation to participate in NHCS. If you are working at or affiliated with a hospital that is contacted about participating in NHCS, please urge the hospital to accept. Every hospital’s contribution to this survey can help inform policy decisions and improve healthcare delivery in the U.S. for Americans suffering from opioid addiction. We hope that together, we can use these data to help inform prevention strategies at the local, state, and national level for preventable drug-related health consequences and deaths." - From the NHCS-DATA group.
