Jackson County health providers integrate addiction services into primary care medical visits

"Addiction is one of the biggest problems facing modern medicine today," said Jim Shames, M.D., medical director for Jackson County Health and Human Services.
"And during an office visit, providers often don't have time to address the behavioral side of physical health until something happens. By integrating mental health and addictions services into primary care, we can smooth the way for someone to get faster access to treatment." With support from Jackson Care Connect, Dr. Shames also leads a pilot program called the Opioid Prescriber's Group, a group of health care professionals in Jackson and Josephine Counties.


Pain Management Clinics Work to Stem Oregon's Tide of Drug Overdoses

Dr. Jim Shames, medical director for Jackson County Health and Human Services, said Oregon is taking other innovative approaches to keep people from becoming hooked on painkillers - but real progress requires a cultural shift, for patients and doctors.
"We really have to change the way we think about the management of chronic pain - of pain in general," he said.


U.S. doctors pay to hear Ore. town's vaccine views - AP - Tyre Dawn and her son, Lukyan, 4, are seen outside an organic food store, Tuesday, Jan. 6, 2009 - Ashland, Oregon - There are so many parents in this free-spirited, unconventional small town who won't get their kids vaccinated that federal researchers are paying money just to hear their side of things.

For years, Dr. Jim Shames, a physician who prefers a down vest to a lab coat, has argued the benefits of vaccines with Harding, his next-door neighbor.
As Jackson County's chief medical officer, Shames would like every child immunized. Ashland always has some whooping cough around, which can be devastating to babies, but has seen no spike in measles. Still, Shames fears the community is vulnerable because so many international visitors come to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and Southern Oregon University. Shames has been working with nursing students from Oregon Health & Science University on a pamphlet that would promote immunization.
