Let’s Talk Stigma [Podcast]

The Pennsylvania Pharmacists Association has partnered with Pharmacy Podcast Network to bring you a series of podcasts designed to help community pharmacists implement change and practice transformation. The Let’s Talk Stigma podcast miniseries is designed to equip community-based pharmacists to provide culturally sensitive care to individuals with opioid use disorders.

This podcast miniseries was developed by the University of Pittsburgh School of Pharmacy in collaboration with Duquesne University School of Pharmacy and paid for through CDC grant funding provided by the Allegheny County Health Department to the University of Pittsburgh and Duquesne University Schools of Pharmacy.

Podcast Episode 1 - Why Stigma Exists: In this episode of Let’s Talk Stigma, we will hear the voices of three different individuals who will share their perspectives on why they believe stigma with opioid use disorders exists and how we can begin to reflect on our own biases and recognize ways we need to change.
