Regional One Day Intensive


Please join us at CFHA's first Regional One Day Intensive "Confronting the New Epidemic: Integrated Care Strategies for Patients with Opioid Use Disorder" in St. Louis, March 17, 2017

WHY ATTEND?
Opioid use disorder (OUD) has been identified by the US Department of Health and Human Services as a national crisis. Nearly 2.5 million people were estimated to have OUD in 2014;  in 2013, an estimated 24,000 individuals died from either prescription opioid or heroin overdose. These trends continue to rise.

The US Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration has promoted Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) as a well-established, evidence based approach to treating OUD in primary care settings. This team-based approach combines medication with counseling and incorporates clinical tools such as motivation interviewing and harm reduction. 

Please join a panel of nationally recognized, integrated care providers and researchers from the University of Massachusetts, as they highlight provider and practice-based challenges and successes in treating patients with OUD in primary care.  Presenters will draw on existing evidence that supports the treatment of opioid dependence in primary care as a chronic condition best addressed by integrated teams of behavioral health and primary care providers. Evidence and strategies for including families in the care of patients with OUD will be presented as well as the critical role of harm reduction in caring for patients within the context of interdisciplinary team-based care. The session will conclude an emphasis improving attendee’s ability to engage in self-care and increase their resilience to stress.

Questions and Wrap-up

 

ABSTRACT

The increase in patients with opioid use disorders (OUD) presenting to primary care has broadened the role medical and behavioral health providers have in providing care for this population. We will highlight provider and practice-based challenges and successes of treating patients with OUD in primary care. This presentation will draw on existing evidence that supports the treatment of opioid dependence in primary care as a chronic condition best addressed by integrated teams of behavioral and medical providers.  Evidence and strategies for including families in the care of patients with OUD will be presented.  The critical role of harm reduction in caring for patients with OUD will be explored within the context of interdisciplinary team-based care.


The session will conclude an emphasis improving attendees ability to engage in self-care and increase their resilience to stress - a critical skill in caring for patients with OUD.

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

By the conclusion of this training participants will be able to:

   Differentiate traditional approaches to addiction treatment from primary care approaches that emphasize harm reduction, empathy, and chronic disease management
