Description:

Opioid use disorder (OUD) is a chronic, relapsing disease. Treatment should be patient-centered and designed with patient input. The evidence-based pharmacologic treatment for OUD is medication combined with psychosocial treatment. One of the barriers in managing patients with OUD is the need for a larger workforce and better communication at points of transition.

This workshop will serve to bring interprofessional healthcare providers together to explore barriers to care and identify solutions.

 

Agenda buttonLearning Objectives:

  • Recognize stigma towards patients with opioid use disorder and implement strategies to address any related issues
  • Understand the role of interdisciplinary healthcare professionals who manage patients with substance use disorders
  • Discuss issues related to substance use disorders and their treatment from the perspective of colleagues from another discipline
  • Identify barriers to care and develop a plan for executing interdisciplinary solutions
