Building Blocks for Sustainability:

As overdose deaths continue to rise, patient access to medications for addiction treatment (MAT) and related services is key to reversing this trend. According to data from the California Department of Public Health, from Q1 2019 to Q4 2020 the rate of opioid overdose deaths has more than doubled. While many agencies have received grant funding to build MAT programs, there are concerns about sustainability when those funds are no longer available. This four part webinar series will provide participants with information and tools to help maintain and sustain MAT programs that provide lifesaving medications and interventions for opioid use disorder. The current session will address the role of the MAT provider in marshalling community resources to support patient treatment and recovery.
At the end of the training, participants will be able to:
- Identify at least three (3) principles in strength-based case management.
- Analyze two (2) examples of entrapping personal narratives.
- Compare two (2) examples of entrapping environmental narratives.
Who should attend? Physicians, Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners and all other healthcare providers
CMEs and CEs provided at NO COST
