minnesota Health Care RoundTable

 

The Minnesota Health Care Roundtable is a semi-annual conference that examines topics affecting the evolution of health care policy. Hosted by Minnesota Physician Publishing, we assemble a panel of between six and eight different stakeholder group perspectives and present a moderated discussion in front of a live audience. Through a three-phase curriculum development process, panelists are involved with co-creating the conference themes. The events generate an eight-page report, published in Minnesota Physician and Minnesota Health Care News and posted online.

Regenerative Medicine Minnesota

Transforming the future of health care

Joint replacement surgery

Helping maintain a healthy lifestyle

We will examine how the opioid epidemic began. We will discuss the elements of mistrust, blame, and miscommunication within the health care delivery system that were responsible for the staggering levels of destruction we face today. Meeting every definition of an epidemic, we will look at how this issue reaches into all parts of society. We will lay out a strategy that can address the central problems in bringing the opioid epidemic under control.

upcoming roundtables

Objectives:

Background and focus:

Medicine is a field that changes slowly, but in the case of prescribing opioid-based pain medications, the speed of change was unprecedented. It has produced tragic outcomes. Two examples are the number of Americans now suffering from opioid-related substance abuse disorder (over 2 million) and the number of opioid-related deaths (over 50,000 annually, and growing). We are facing a complex problem, created by conflicting industry incentives and one that will demand unified stakeholder participation to solve.

 

Panelists include:

Karina A. Forrest-Perkins, MHR, LADC, Chief Executive Officer, Wayside Recovery Center

Todd Ginkel, DC, Director of Clinical Affairs, Physicians’ Diagnostics & Rehabilitation Clinics

Beth Gomez, RN, BSN, JD, Manager, Risk Management, Coverys

The afternoon event will facilitate a policy discussion from different stakeholder perspectives.
