Webinar Series: The Opioid Epidemic: Medications Used to Treat Opioid Addiction
February 7, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
This three-part webinar series is designed to assist health and human service providers working in a variety of settings with developing strategies to address the opioid public health crisis in the U.S. The first webinar in the series, “Medications Used to Treat Opioid Addiction,” will explore what medication-assisted treatment is, by whom it can be administered, for whom it is appropriate, how it works, what kinds of medication are involved, and whether or not there are opportunities for you or your organization to help promote this evidence-based medical practice.
This webinar is designed for health care providers including physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurse midwives, nurses, counselors, social workers, case managers, and other staff who interact with patients, who work in multiple types of settings including primary care, geriatric care, maternal and child health care, STD/HIV & reproductive health care, mental health, addictions, health departments, hospitals, health centers, schools, and community health settings.
This series is offered by the Central East Addiction Technology Transfer Center, in collaboration with the Regional Office (Region III) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the MidAtlantic Training Collaborative for Health and Human Services (MATCHHS).
