    Demonstrating Effective Leadership

    According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (2019a), deaths due to

    opioid overdose have increased almost six-fold in the last 10 years. Opioid overdose is also

    responsible for an average of 130 deaths in the United States every day. Although there is a lot of

    scholarly literature available on evidence-based approaches to tackle the problem of addiction,

    prevention and treatment interventions require an effective coalition. The following assessment

    focuses on addressing the issue of opioid addiction in Charleston, West Virginia, through the

    formation of effective coalition teams. A thorough analysis of factors contributing to the problem

    helps in understanding who needs to be included in the coalition to make it work most

    effectively. The analysis of the contributing factors also helps develop strategies, best practices,

    and ethical standards that the coalition team should consider to ensure that it achieves its goal.

    An effective coalition must also strive to operate in an environment that is diverse and inclusive

    and uses evidence in the field to inform every aspect of practice.

  • Contributing Factors to Opioid Addiction
  • According to a report by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (2019), West Virginia

    reported the highest number of deaths due to opioid overdose. In 2017, about 833 deaths were

    reported in West Virginia, with a prevalence rate of about 49.6 deaths for every 100,000 people.

    This rate was three times the national rate of 14.6 deaths per 100,000 persons (National Institute

    on Drug Abuse, 2019).

    There are many factors that contribute to opioid abuse and addiction. Social determinants

    of health and their influence on the opioid crisis are important factors to consider. They include

    aspects such as education, income stability, social participation, access to affordable health care,

    and childhood trauma (Compton & Manseau, 2019). Another contributor to the increase of

    3

    opioid addiction is the overprescribing of opioid painkillers. Opioid painkillers are aggressively

    marketed as treatments for non-cancer chronic pain, leading to an explosion in the number of

    prescriptions for such painkillers (Compton & Manseau, 2019). According to Anderson and

    McNair (2018), individuals seeking treatment for opioid addiction are often in despairing social,

    financial, and health conditions. These factors result in the widespread use of opioids and the

    expansion of opioid availability, which act as major barriers for individuals seeking treatment for

    opioid addiction. Poor financial statuses, a lack of positive relationships, peer pressure, limited

    coverage of insurance facilities, and habitancy in rural areas also act as barriers for seeking and

    accessing quality treatment services.

  • Coalition to Address Opioid Addiction
  • In Charleston, West Virginia, a coalition team is being formed by extensively analyzing

    the contributing factors that lead to opioid addiction. Members of the coalition will include

    medical professionals, mental health professionals, pharmacists, health services professionals,

    community leaders, and community members. These members are most likely to have extensive

    experience in dealing with the effects of the opioid crisis in both clinical and nonclinical settings,

    and they will be able to provide invaluable insights to tackle opioid addiction in the city of

    Charleston (Compton & Manseau, 2019).

    The team will be composed of nine members as listed in the following table; through

    their expertise, the team members will work toward preventing opioid addiction in Charleston

    West Virginia.

    Issues Affecting Collaboration

    Several barriers stand in the way of forming an effective coalition to tackle the opioid

    crisis. Those members of the coalition who are also part of another organization, one from which

    5

    Copyright ©2021 Capella University. Copy and distribution of this document are prohibited.

    they could bring in resources to help the coalition, may face resistance from their organizations

    about sharing their work, their target populations, and the funding allocated to the organization.

    There are potential issues that are endemic to organized groups of people, such as an

    unpleasant history with fellow team members, differences due to hierarchy of authority, or the

    inability to establish effective leadership within the coalition team. Individuals who are partially

    dedicated to the coalition could increase the risk of conflict within the team. Such conflicts, if

    left unresolved, can seriously hamper the coalition’s efforts to reach its goal. The coalition could

    also be ineffective and unsustainable if there is a failure to establish effective communication

    between the coalition team and the community or if the coalition has diminished capacity to

    solicit funding. It is also essential for the coalition to have a shared mission and clearly defined

    roles and expectations to improve collaboration and minimize conflict (Center for Community

    Health and Development, n.d.).

  • Strategies to Optimize Collaboration
  • There are five key dimensions of effective coalitions. They are team leadership, mutual

    performance monitoring, backup behavior, adaptability, and team orientation (Smith et al.,

    2018). Effective leadership provides the coalition with the fundamentals, such as task

    coordination and planning in addition to developing and motivating the team by maintaining a

    positive and inclusive atmosphere. When coalition members have sufficient knowledge and

    understanding of the roles and tasks of other team members of the coalition, they can function as

    a backup in case of an overload or absence. Adaptability prepares the members of the coalition to

    respond to sudden changes so that the functioning of the coalition is minimally impacted. Lastly,

    to be team orientated, the members of the coalition must be willing to take others’ ideas and

    6

    Copyright ©2021 Capella University. Copy and distribution of this document are prohibited.

    perspectives into consideration and believe that the team’s goals are greater than the individual’s

    (Smith et al., 2018).

    Strategies to optimize collaboration and communication must address issues relating to

    information sharing, personality factors, emotional intelligence, and organizational factors.

    Issues related to information sharing can be resolved by ensuring that the whole team is trained

    together. Issues can be mitigated by promoting inclusivity and democracy within the team.

    Finally, organizational roadblocks can be minimized by providing the team with well-defined

    protocols and procedures in addition to maintaining an organizational culture that is unbiased

    and supportive (Smith et al., 2018).

  • Ethical Considerations
  • The Code of Ethics recommends that health professionals address ethical questions and

    dilemmas for the benefit of population health. Ethical principles such as individual autonomy,

    mutual respect, social justice, equity, accountability, transparency, trust, open communication,

    and the development of leadership are important in dealing with challenges in health care (Laaser

    et al., 2017). Laaser et al. published original research that describes in detail methods to draft an

    ethical code for a public health initiative that could be beneficial to the coalition. The coalition

    can use these methods as guidelines to address ethical practice within the group and in

    connecting with the identified population.

    On a micro level, the ethical issues associated with tackling an opioid crisis can be

    observed when administering treatments to individuals who may not be competent enough to

    make decisions for themselves. The decision-making capacity of individuals under the influence

    of drugs or experiencing withdrawal is questionable. The coalition team will adhere to guidelines

    outlined in The Code of Ethics. The basic principles of these guidelines revolve around respect

    7

    Copyright ©2021 Capella University. Copy and distribution of this document are prohibited.

    for persons, autonomy, beneficence, non-maleficence, and justice. Respect for persons includes

    participants’ right to know what changes they would undergo during treatment. Autonomy

    involves respecting a patient’s opinions and desires when deciding the course of treatment

    without coercing them or interfering with their decision. Beneficence helps prevent potential

    harm and maximizes the potential benefits to patients by assessing the risks and benefits

    associated with the treatment and rehabilitation. Non-maleficence involves minimizing or

    eliminating any potential harm that could be caused to the patient by the treatment. Justice

    represents equality and fairness, qualities that must be considered when administering life-saving

    care (Laaser et al., 2017).

    On a meso level, the coalition team must consider ethical issues that may arise while

    administering treatment to opioid abuse victims such as prejudice based on gender identity, race,

    economic status, political inclination, and religious beliefs (Anderson & McNair, 2018). An

    ethically sound coalition will address equal access to care to all who need it without prejudice.

    On the other hand, modern health systems are expected to proactively manage the health care

    needs of large populations over multiple sites of care. This requires excellent coordination at all

    levels of care delivery. Failure to establish a complex system that delivers optimal care to

    patients is a meso level ethical violation of non-maleficence on behalf of the administrative team.

    The coalition is ethically required to work with their counterparts and various levels of

    professionals and care staff to decide oversight structure, execution responsibility, resource

    distribution criteria, and relevant fiscal administration that will guarantee safe, effective, and

    prompt care across the entire system (Jeon et al., 2018).

  • Collaboration, Diversity, and Inclusion
  • Inspired by the Joint Statement of Principles followed by the Coalition for Diversity and

    Inclusion in Scholarly Communications, the coalition team will establish a culture of respect,

    inclusion, and value in the team by removing barriers to participation and providing equal

    opportunities to all team members. Maintaining an environment that promotes and respects

    diversity among all team members through effective communication will enable the active

    participation of all team members in major decision-making tasks involving the goal of

    preventing opioid addiction (Coalition for Diversity and Inclusion in Scholarly Communications,

    2020). Further, creating an inclusive workplace accounting for racial, religious, cultural, or

    gender diversity, helps improve collaboration and develop a feeling of belonging in an

    organization. This, in turn, results in improved staff satisfaction and an environment that is

    conducive to the development of innovative intervention strategies to battle opioid addiction.

    Additionally, developing a workplace culture that celebrates diversity and inclusiveness

    promotes communality, which is fundamental for community engagement and improved patient

    outcomes.

    Community-level interventions can be implemented in the form of public education,

    health care provider-patient interactions, and community-based medication disposal programs.

    Educating communities on utilizing naloxone (which is used to treat emergency cases of opioid

    overdose) and medication-assisted treatment (MAT) to reverse opioid overdose in a language

    layman can easily understand is pivotal. It is also important that physicians and other health care

    professionals alert patients about the risks associated with the overdose of prescription opioids.

    Encouraging communities to install drop boxes and set up collection sites for the collective

    disposal of unused opioids will also help prevent opioid addiction.

  • Literature Review to Address Opioid Addiction
  • Scholar-practitioners form an integral part of health care, especially when developing

    innovations for better patient outcomes and greater stakeholder satisfaction. Researchers and

    practitioners prefer distinct roles and identities, which creates a research-to-practice gap in

    conversations about innovative approaches for improved patient outcomes. This means that

    approaches or interventions from researchers are disseminated among practitioners without much

    feedback about the real-world effects of the application of those approaches or interventions.

    Scholar-practitioners bridge this gap by translating and interpreting new research and theory for

    practitioners and highlighting practical problems to theorists and scholars. The coalition

    members are highly skilled in their specific domains but will approach the opioid crisis in

    Charleston as scholar-practitioners to ensure maximum efficiency in tackling the issue. The

    following studies may be used by members of the coalition for information on evidence-based

    strategies to tackle multiple aspects of an opioid crisis (Werner & Bleich, 2017).

    Kerr’s (2019) study on public health responses to the opioid crisis in North America

    broadly covers various aspects of the topic, including best practices for the prevention of opioid

    addiction. These practices are based on thorough reviews of the latest scientific research and

    expert opinions on helping addicts and those at a potential risk of addiction. It highlights the role

    of naloxone in overdose reversal and how distributing naloxone across communities can have

    lifesaving effects. It also highlights how MAT can improve the quality of life in addicts. The

    study recommends screening for fentanyl to track its circulation within the local drug

    supply.

    The coalition could use this information to modify evidence-based strategies that could be

    employed to determine the most effective distribution system of naloxone for opioid abuse

    victims in Charleston. Screening for synthetic opioids could be vital in the coalition’s efforts to

    10

    Copyright ©2021 Capella University. Copy and distribution of this document are prohibited.

    reduce and prevent overdose deaths through early detection of lethal contaminants in the drug

    supply.

    The study by Carroll et al. (2018) also contains evidence-based strategies covering

    various aspects of dealing with an opioid crisis. The study recommends syringe services

    programs, which are interventions that provide clean syringes in exchange for used ones. Patients

    with opioid use disorder are encouraged to take up treatment and counseling when they enter

    syringe services programs (Carroll et al., 2018). The coalition team and the community can

    partner to develop a syringe services program for patients with opioid addiction and connect

    them with treatment and counseling programs.

    The studies offer insights on the benefits of restricting supply and reducing the demand

    for prescription opiates, influencing prescribing practices, and decreasing the possibility of harm

    as strategies that the coalition could use to guide their efforts in addressing the opioid addiction

    crisis in Charleston. The coalition members must function as scholar-practitioners who seek out

    knowledge and discuss current strategies that will lead to improved health care outcomes. A

    scholar-practitioner develops this knowledge by continuously reflecting on the latest research

    and engaging with team members in scholarly discussions on how health care professionals can

    collaborate to drive evidence-based improvements in population health.

    Conclusion

    The increasing prevalence of opioid addiction is a global problem that calls for a

    prevention intervention. Forming interprofessional coalition teams in every community can help

    prevent opioid addiction. Optimizing interprofessional collaboration among these coalitions is

    pivotal for preventing opioid addiction. The treatment of opioid use disorder is challenging

    because of factors such as the comorbidity of other psychiatric illnesses and dependence on

    opioid painkillers. The treatment of opioid use disorder requires further research. Coalition teams

    11

    must consider an ethical code of conduct when working toward implementing interventions to

    prevent opioid addiction. Effective communication, the elimination of barriers by promoting

    diversity in teams, and effective leadership are some best practices for interprofessional

    collaboration that will help teams. Literature reviews demonstrate evidence-based practices such

    as educating communities, physicians, and health care providers on opioid addiction treatment,

    improving access to MAT, and revising insurance policies on access to drugs recommended by

    the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The goal of preventing opioid addiction can be achieved

    by collective emphasis on prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation of patients with opioid use

    disorder and those who are at a potential risk for addiction.
