Communities of Practice for Rural Communities Opioid Response Program Website
In Ohio, efforts to increase capacity and sustainability at the local level use a community of practice model. A community of practice (CoP) is a group of people who share a craft or a profession. In the case of the HRSA Communities of Practice for Rural Communities Opioid Response Program (COP-RCORP) initiative, our shared craft is the planning of activities related to tackling the opioid epidemic. Our community consists of a master consortia, 5 local consortia, and partnerships at the state level.
