This training is approved for CARC/CRPA hours in addition to OASAS-approved hours.   Description: Research suggests that race and ethnicity are predictors of how services are delivered, and implicit bias is one component that has been identified as influencing the provision of poor care. The elusiveness of unconscious bias underscores provider perception, unwitting use of stigmatic language, and influences assumptions and microaggressions affecting a person's capacity to respond to care.

Webinar/Virtual Training
The New England ATTC in partnership with RICARES is providing a basic/universal TA session titled “Makeshift medicine is a response to US health system failures” on 4/18/24 from 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM. In public health research, a theoretical framework is like a plan or a set of guidelines. It helps people understand the ideas and concepts they're working with, and it gives them a structure to organize their work. Like an instruction manual, a theoretical framework guides researchers or project planners in organizing their thoughts and designing their work in a logical and meaningful way. Pat Kelly created the ‘makeshift medicine’ framework, which describes how people address healthcare needs when they cannot access care by traditional means—that is, when they, for various reasons, may not be able to see a doctor, make an appointment at a clinic, or go to a hospital. This framework can help us understand, for example, why some people who inject drugs may not wish to have skin wounds treated in-clinic because they fear stigma against people who use drugs. Further, the ‘makeshift medicine’ framework is a critical first step in understanding how to better help care for the needs of people who are otherwise excluded by the traditional care delivery system.

Virtual TA Session
Virtual service delivery in the substance use and mental health treatment fields is here to stay, according to Meurer-Lynn (2023) and other notable researchers (Aafies- van Doom, et al., 2023; Shore, 2021; etc.). As such, how to blend in-person and virtual service (hybrid) delivery becomes an important question. Hybrid service delivery is a mixture of in-person sessions with videoconferencing sessions and may include phone check-ins. Hybrid service delivery models are known for providing flexibility, especially to clients with access issues, such as clients living in rural areas or those with transportation issues. Join the online consultation session every third Friday of the month to ask questions and discuss/share hybrid service delivery tips for practitioners. Examples of topics that can be discussed are: how to determine the right combination/ratio of virtual and in-person sessions; leveraging in-person and virtual (video and phone) sessions; negotiating a schedule with clients that will increase engagement, attendance, and adherence to treatment; what clinicians and administrators need to consider when initiating hybrid delivery services (e.g., reimbursement, privacy/security issues, staffing, telephone policies). To join Hybrid Service OtS use the Zoom login below on the scheduled time and day: Step 1: Join from PC, Mac, Linux, iOS or Android: https://zoom.us/j/99479731969 Step 2: Join by Telephone (ONLY if device doesn't have a microphone built in): Phone: +1 669 900 6833 (US Toll) or +1 408 638 0968 (US Toll) Meeting ID: 994 7973 1969 Continuing education hours are not provided.
