Nevada's Rx Abuse Prevention Summit Set for Aug. 31-Sept. 1

The meeting provides the opportunity for the first lady's Drug Abuse Prevention Task Force and subsequently the Multidisciplinary Prevention Advisory Committee to update the community on laws put into place as a result of the 78th Legislative Session and Nevada's Strategic Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention Plan.

Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval and First Lady Kathleen Sandoval will host a prescription drug abuse summit Aug. 31-Sept. 1 in Las Vegas, and the state now has posted its agenda. The meeting provides the opportunity for the first lady's Drug Abuse Prevention Task Force and subsequently the Multidisciplinary Prevention Advisory Committee to update the community on laws put into place as a result of the 78th Legislative Session and Nevada's Strategic Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention Plan.

Speakers listed on the agenda include Scott Pattison, executive director of the National Governors Association; Dr. Alexander Isani of the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in North Las Vegas; and USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack.

"Nevada has established policies that have become national models in prescription drug monitoring and ongoing coordination between the public and private sector. I am proud of what we have accomplished, but there is more work to be done," Gov. Sandoval said in June 2016. "This summit will bring together all stakeholders as well as community advocates and leaders in a united effort to eradicate this growing epidemic and create safe and livable communities."

According to that announcement, the summit will focus on these four priority topics:

  • Duties and responsibilities of health care licensing boards
  • An overview of current coordination and opportunities for expanded collaboration with local, state, and federal law enforcement
  • Review of existing rehabilitation practices and substance abuse treatments
  • Cooperation and oversight for private section issues, including sale and availability of pharmaceuticals
