Caring for Women with Opioid Use Disorder: a Toolkit for Organization Leaders and Providers

This HRSA toolkit is a guide to help health care and social service organization leaders and providers improve care coordination for women with OUD in HRSA-supported programs. The information may also apply to other settings of care and to work with women with substance use disorder more broadly.

The toolkit is organized into three major sections:

  • Shifting the culture around addiction and treatment
  • Engaging women with opioid use disorder (OUD) in care
  • Creating and maintaining partnerships that support care coordination for women with OUD

Each section includes tools that organization leaders and providers may use to improve the delivery of coordinated care to women with OUD. A list of additional resources that may be helpful is provided at the end of the toolkit.
