Improving care for patients with substance use and abuse disorders

Sponsored by California Academy of Family Physicians and CAFP Foundation

The overall goal of this project is to improve education, outreach, and treatment for patients with substance use disorder disease, including stimulant and opioid use disorder, with a focus on increasing capacity for effective MAT implementation. Our goal is to enhance training, while encouraging creative and innovative approaches to meeting program and community needs. You could choose for example, If appropriate, to take advantage of new developments in health care delivery, such as telemedicine and managing OUD in the context of social determinants of health that are captured during the course of clinical care and/or in the electronic health record, etc. Proposals should identify methods to improve or advance the standard of care for patients, demonstrate how best to implement those methods, and evaluate the outcomes of these efforts.

With the broad goal above in mind, we have selected three objectives for this RFA.

  1. Advance the training of primary care residents and physicians in the field of substance use disorder disease screening, diagnosis, and treatment.
  2. Improve the patient experience of care (including quality and satisfaction).
  3. Promote care that is patient-centric, and evidence-based, engaging the community in the overall management of substance use disorder.

We encourage grantees to use SMART goals/objectives in their proposals.  SMART criteria are commonly attributed to Peter Drucker’s management by objective concept. The first known use of the term occurs in the November 1981 issue of Management Review by George T. Doran. The principal advantage of SMART objectives is that they are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Time Bound.
