ORN Learning Community

The ORN Learning Community is a new initiative for ATTC Technology Transfer Specialists (TTS) and TA Consultants. The purpose is to democratize knowledge regarding prevention, treatment and recovery from opioids, and to get promising practices to TTS and TA consultant teams in the TA jurisdictions. The Learning Community sessions will provide an opportunity for TTS and TA Consultants to:

  • Increase their knowledge about a certain topic related to the work of the Opioid Response Network.
  • Share lessons learned with each other in regard to responding successfully to TA requests

The ORN Learning Community occurs the third Wednesday of every month from 2-3:15 ET via Zoom videoconferencing technology. Each session contains a 20-minute didactic, a case presentation on a real TA request, and open discussion and recommendations about how to resolve key questions within the TA request. Didactic topics are organized into quarters. The first quarter of the Learning Community focuses on implementation science, featuring the Opioid Response Network implementation sub-committee, chaired by Aimee Campbell and Karen Oliver. For questions on the Learning Community, please contact Laurie Krom at kroml@umkc.edu.

Our Strategy

Our strategy is to provide continuous learning opportunities so that the ORN core team members, providers, and consultants develop Communities of Practice (CoPs) among the TA teams to share lessons learned or issues that may benefit others in a rapid, ongoing way so that lessons learned can be shared and applied.
