Utah County has developed community-wide public/private partnerships to educate its residents about the risks associated with prescription pain medication and to promote a conversation between patient and doctor about effective alternatives.

Salt Lake City, February 13, 2018—Addiction to prescription pain medications, also known as opioids, is an epidemic in Utah and across the nation. For many, addiction began with a legal prescription. To educate the public about this health crisis, Intermountain Healthcare, MountainStar Healthcare, Wasatch Mental Health, Utah County Department of Drug and Alcohol Prevention & Treatment and the state’s prevention campaign, Use Only as Directed, have joined forces to encourage Utah County residents to Speak Out, Opt Out and Throw Out their prescription opioids.

On Thursday, February 15, at 11:00am at Mountain View Hospital—1000 E. 100 N. in Payson—leaders from three participating healthcare organizations will join with local prevention experts and Utah County Commissioner Bill Lee to unveil the widespread public awareness campaign. The gravity of the problem in Utah County, including the particularly hard-hit Payson community, is underscored by Utah Department of Health morbidity (injury) data that reports Utah County is one of the top five hotspots in the state for emergency department visits due to opioid misuse/overdose. These concerning trends have mobilized the county’s public and private healthcare organizations to deliver a unified public health message to their patients. Specifically, the local effort also includes opioid prevention messages in its community mental health clinics—a crucial, underserved audience where 60-70 percent of patients being treated for a mental health disorder also have a substance use disorder.

Large-scale messaging throughout the hospitals and clinics will educate patrons to the fact that 7,000 opioid prescriptions are issued each day in Utah, increasing the chance for misuse or abuse; and will remind Utahns that while prescription pain medications can be a powerful, healing tool, it can take just seven days to develop a physical dependency to opioids. “MountainStar Healthcare is pleased to be part of an educational campaign that supports our commitment to patient safety. It complements and enhances our initiatives to empower our patients and caregivers to work together to make more informed, healthier choices about pain management,” says Janet Zarndt, director of pharmacy services for MountainStar Healthcare.

Partners in the initiative are encouraging Utah County residents to Speak Out, by having a conversation with their doctor about the potential risks of opioids and Opt Out of prescription pain medications in favor of other CDC-recommended, effective alternatives. “Intermountain Healthcare has set a goal to reduce the number of opioid tablets prescribed for acute pain by 40 percent in 2018. We are committed to working with our patients and providers to improve the health and well-being of the communities in which we serve,” stated Kevin Brooks, MHA, administrator of Intermountain Healthcare Utah Valley Hospital. The partnership with five Intermountain hospitals and clinics, two MountainStar hospitals and four Wasatch Mental Health clinics will also feature signage about the Five Questions to Ask Your Doctor About Opioids, and Throw Out messaging directing patrons to use their local medication drop box for safe disposal of leftover opioids.

Residents who have been directly affected by someone struggling with prescription opioid addiction will also be in attendance when the Speak Out, Opt Out, Throw Out campaign is unveiled to show their support for local prevention efforts. “Opioid misuse is a community problem that requires a community solution. That’s why partnerships like these are a crucial part of turning the tide, helping us move upstream to prevent substance use through local outreach and education,” says Heather Lewis, ASUDC, prevention program manager at Utah County Department of Drug and Alcohol Prevention & Treatment.

The Use Only as Directed campaign, a collaboration between federal, state, city, county and private businesses, was launched in 2008 and is dedicated to preventing prescription opioid misuse and abuse. By mobilizing media, community partnerships and local outreach, it seeks to educate Utahns about the risks associated with opioids and other effective pain management alternatives, as well as change behaviors regarding proper use, storage and disposal of prescription opioids.

Provo College prepares to add master’s program in 2018

For more than three decades, Provo College has been sending well-educated, expertly trained healthcare professionals out into the medical field. Beginning with dental professionals when the original Dental Career Institute first opened in 1984, the college has since evolved to the well-respected career college.

Previously known for up to 18 educational programs including dental hygiene, massage therapy, graphic design and more, Provo College has found its niche in the healthcare industry, focusing on three degrees — nursing, medical assisting and physical therapy assistant. The Nursing program makes up over 80 percent of the student population

Todd Smith, is vice president of campus operations for Provo College. He has witnessed the growth of the college over his five-year tenure. Especially in the area of nursing. The demand for nurses has exploded.

Even though the nursing industry is one of the fastest-growing occupations in the nation, the demand is outpacing the supply, according to Nurse.com. By the year 2022 — just four years from now — it is expected there will be 1 million jobs for RNs.

To help keep up with the demand, in 2015 Provo College created a new three-year hybrid Bachelor of  Science degree in nursing.  The program was designed for non-traditional students wanting to be nurses. What makes the program so unique is: no prerequisites, no wait list, 80 percent of the classes are online, a good transfer credit policy and three starts per year.

The career college has attracted CNAs, students from BYU and UVU that are on the nursing wait list, stay-at-home moms and kids just graduating from high school. The program is programmatically accredited by CCNE (Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education) the same accreditation as BYU and UVU.

In August of 2017, Provo College had their first graduating class.  The class had a 100 percent first-time pass rate for the NCLEX (Nursing certification test). The college currently has more than 250 nursing students and anticipates growing to 300 by the end of the year.

The Associate Degree in the Physical Therapist Assistant program has been part of Provo College for over 15 years. This 18-month program is very demanding but boasts high placement and first-time pass rates for certification. Last year they had 100 percent placement and it is consistently in the high 90 percent-plus range for placement and pass rate. The program prepares students to work in rehab centers, physical therapy clinics, hospitals and other medical centers. It is the largest of the three PTA programs in the state of Utah.

Medical assisting program is one of Provo College’s long-running programs, allowing students to receive a diploma in nine months or an associates degree in two years. This program has grown in popularity due to its flexible schedule — three days a week and four hours a day.

What is new at Provo College? Later this year, the college will introduce its master’s degree nursing.

“We are developing the curriculum for that now,” said Smith. The program will give graduates the opportunity to go on to get their master’s in an all-online program.  “It’s an exciting program that will attract many of our graduates and other nurses in the area.”

Over the past 34 years, Provo College has continued to thrive due, in part, to a strong focus on its mission statement which is: “We are caring professionals who empower individuals to achieve personal excellence through student centered, market driven education.” As a career college they focus on the individual by having small classes, academic advisors and hands on training.

Treating Pain Through Chiropractic Practices- Avoiding the Opioids

AMERICAN FORK, UT- January 12, 2018 Every month in Utah 24 people die due to prescription opioid abuse. Many of us know someone effected by the new opidemic, it effects our family, our friends, and our community. Chiropractic is focused on helping you gain true health without the use of drugs or surgery.

Because of the recent opioid epidemic in Utah, Intermountain Health Care has set the goal for the upcoming year to decrease opioid prescription by 40%. As part of the goal Intermountain is reaching out to other effective treatments like chiropractic for pain management.

Intermountain recently invited Dr Marc Nelson to speak at the Pain Symposium in Park City Utah. Dr Nelson is an expert on chiropractic and pain management, and currently helps patients on a daily basis in his privately-owned clinic, Cadence Chiropractic. in American Fork Utah.  

During the beginning of Dr Nelson’s career he had the great opportunity to work at Myrtle Hilliard Davis Health Centers in St Louis Missouri. Myrtle Hilliard was established as a way for underserved populations to get the health care they need. In St Louis city 29.3% of the population falls below the national poverty line and over 13% of the entire state of Missouri is uninsured.

Dr Nelson had the opportunity to provide chiropractic care for hundreds of people suffering from pain to help them find a safe natural way to avoid pain killer medications and the dangerous addictions they can cause.

Chiropractic has been proven in the research to be a safe effective treatment for pain and Dr Nelson is currently petitioning to get chiropractic integrated into the health care systems of Utah to fight the opioid epidemic we face.

About Cadence Chiropractic:
As a neurologically based clinic, we use the most advanced technology in the industry to find the true cause of your health problems and correct them at the source. This allows your body to heal the way it was designed to, naturally, from the inside-out.

Good Vibrations: A Celebration of The Beach Boys to chase away winter blues with Jan. 11-13 tribute concert at SCERA

(Orem, Utah) — The enviable sun, surf and sand of Southern California became even more famous than they already were when The Beach Boys sprang onto the music scene in the mid-1960s and gave new meaning to the sounds of summer.

Their hits became legendary as did the members of the band, and their signature harmonies and upbeat melodies evoke the dream of an endless season of fun in the sun.

A new generation of singers devoted to the Beach Boys’ sound, have regenerated the California spirit and taken it countrywide as a tribute to the original California dreamers.

Called Good Vibrations! A Celebration of the Beach Boys, the group will make three appearances at the SCERA Center for the Arts in January and help audiences chase away the winter blues and start off the new year with a bit of musical nostalgia.

Tickets for the 7 p.m. Jan. 11, 12 and 13 concerts are available at $14 for adults and $12 for children 3-11 and seniors 65 and older. They may be purchased at www.scera.org, by calling 801-225-ARTS, or in person at SCERA main office weekdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays from noon to 6 p.m.  All tickets are reserved, and SCERA Center is located at 745 S. State St., in Orem.

For those interested, SCERA is also offering a pre-show island style dinner from the original Bamboo Hut prior to the Jan. 11 (Thursday) concert in Room 201, next to the theater. The cost will be $10 per person, and tickets must be purchased separately from the concert tickets.

The singers comprise much more than a typical tribute band. Close your eyes, and you might swear you are listening to Brian Wilson or Al Jardine, two of the original founders. That’s because the members of Good Vibrations are formers members of the founder’s touring bands. Good Vibrations is a full scale production complete with era-specific costumes, multi-media video and surfer girls.

The concert will offer a bit of nostalgia for people who remember the original ensemble as well as introduce a new generation of listeners to the distinctive sounds of The Beach Boys.

In celebration the band’s high energy hits, prepare to hear such classics as “Surfin’ USA,” “I Get Around,” “Help Me Rhonda,” “California Girls,” “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” “Fun, Fun, Fun,” “Barbara Ann,” “Kokomo” and, not surprisingly, “Good Vibrations.”

“We booked this concert purposefully in January,” says Adam J. Robertson, SCERA’s President and CEO. “We want to bring a little summer to Utah winter, and with an authentic, retro look, you might even believe you’ve been transported back in time.”
