NIDA/CCTN Webinar: Addictions Research Meets Lived Experience: Lessons Learned, Opportunities and Challenges

October 30, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm


The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) Center for the Clinical Trials Network (CCTN) is hosting a webinar titled Addictions Research Meets Lived Experience: Lessons Learned, Opportunities and Challenges.

Peer support services have expanded to a wide variety of health service settings, and evaluating the impact of peer services is an important addition to the research agenda. In this webinar, the presenters and panel members will share lessons learned in conducting trials with persons with lived experience -peers-participating as an integral component of the intervention. The goal of the webinar is to assist investigators in designing future studies with peers as interventionists. The agenda includes an overview of the development of peer services in addiction treatment, a brief description of three research projects, and a panel discussion of peer supervision, self-care, scope of practice, fidelity, harm reduction approaches, and role induction for peers in research. The audience will have the opportunity to ask questions and engage in discussion with the presenters and panel members.   

Presenters: Keith Humphries, Kelly Barth, Steve Shoptaw, Nabila El-Bassel, Todd Korthuis
Panel Members: Al Hasson (facilitator), Todd Korthuis, Louise Haynes, Pete Smith, Joanna Cooper
