A National Investigation of the Opioid Use Disorder Impacts on Employment Prospects for People with Disabilities from Racially/Ethnically Diverse Backgrounds.

 

We are pleased to let you know that you have been selected to participate in a national study on Opioid Use Disorder Impacts on Employment Prospects for People with Disabilities from Racially/Ethnically Diverse Backgrounds. Opioid use disorder (OUD) is defined as having either a heroin use disorder (i.e., dependence or abuse) or pain reliever use disorder related to their misuse of prescription pain relievers in the past year, or if they had both disorders.

 

 

This study is being conducted by the Langston University Rehabilitation Research and Training Center (LU-RRTC) on Research and Capacity Building for Minority Entities. The LU-RRTC is funded by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR).

 

The new information generated through this study would provide insights on how policy makers, educators; and federal research sponsoring agencies such as the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) can better respond to the needs of people with opioid use disorder, especially people with disabilities from minority backgrounds. In addition, the study findings may be used as a foundation for developing interventions that seek to improve the experiences and outcomes of individuals with disabilities from minority backgrounds with opioid use disorder.

 

Clarification of terms used in this survery:

Disabilities = Substance use disorders, mental health disorders, or phycial disabilities.

Minorities = Persons from ethnic or racial backgrounds including African American, Hispanic or Latino, American Indian, Alaskan Native, or Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islanders.  

 

The survey will take around 20-minutes to complete. Thank you in advance for your contributions.
