STEMS Spring Training
Tonight we are excited to kick off our 12th-Annual STEMS Spring Training Conference at Good Times in Olean. Tickets for the conference sold out again this year and we are anticipating a great turnout today and tomorrow. Providers at this year’s conference will learn about best practices in cardiac arrest management, effective communication with families, TeamSTEPPS, which improves communication with other medical providers, risk management, field termination of resuscitation and Alzheimer’s disease. The providers also get a great opportunity to interact with vendors and network with each other. I want to thank all of the organizations who sponsored this year’s conference and STEMS Program Coordinator, Alicia Broadbent, for all of her hard work planning the conference.
Prescription Medication Drop Box
To continue our efforts to combat the impact of the opioid epidemic in our region and support the work of the Cattaraugus County Heroin/Opioid Task Force, I’m pleased to report that we received a grant from the Western Regional Addiction Resource Collaborative to support the purchase and placement of a prescription medication drop box at the Franklinville Police Department. The Western Regional Addiction Resource Collaborative is an OASAS-funded region-wide coalition that was developed to help address substance abuse issues through a variety of environmental approaches. Currently there are five prescription medication drop boxes in Cattaraugus County, but none are located in the northeastern part of the county. Placing this medication drop box at the Franklinville Police Department will reduce diversion of prescription opioids and other medications by making it easier for residents to dispose of unused medications. I want to thank Mark Slavinski, the Franklinville Police Chief, for being willing to host the drop box at the Franklinville Police Department.
