"From efficacy to effectiveness of reinforcement interventions: Application to the opioid crisis". Nancy M. Petry, PhD, Professor of Medicine & Psychiatry, Director, REWARD Center, Director, Behavioral Cardiovascular Prevention, Calhoun Cardiology Center, University of Connecticut Health Center, CT.
Abstract: Reinforcement interventions are grounded in basic behavioral and behavioral economic research. If a behavior is reinforced, it will increase in frequency. Reinforcement interventions have been widely studied in treating substance use disorders, and they are now being implemented clinically to improve outcomes of patients with substance use disorder throughout the country. This talk will review the background and efficacy of reinforcement interventions for treating substance use disorders as well as their application to other health behaviors. It will also address how this approach can be applied to reduce some of the adverse consequences associated with the opioid crisis.
