The Alosa Foundation has renewed its partnership with the HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis, STD and TB Administration (HAHSTA), of the District of Columbia Department of Health, to utilize academic detailing techniques in educating healthcare professionals about disease-specific health screenings.
Alosa has also expanded its partnership with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health to not only use academic detailing as a means of educating providers on antipsychotic medications in nursing homes, but also to address the judicious prescribing of opioids in the community.
Alosa is now partnering with the Vermont Health Care Association and the Vermont Department of Disabilities, Aging and Independent Living to bring academic detailing to nursing homes across the state. The program’s focus is to reduce the inappropriate use of APMs in nursing homes.
