OAAPN’s Government Relations Committee is working to make an impact on the opioid crisis in Ohio by identifying barriers to non-pharmacological treatments for acute and chronic pain. Our goal is to influence legislation and insurance payors to approve payment of these alternative treatment options to opioids.

We are looking for volunteers to research identified non-pharmacological treatment options and gather coverage information on these treatment from the most popular insurance carriers in Ohio. Volunteers must also be able to commit time to collaborate with other members of the committee.

This is a perfect opportunity to become actively involved in gathering APRN driven research and improve health policy Ohio. For more information and to volunteer, please contact Tonya M. Carter DNP, FNP- BC attonyacoaapn@gmail.com.
