An average of 5 Oregonians die very week from opioid misuse, with many more developing opioid use disorder and/or dependence. By increasing access to Medication in various service settings, we can help change this. The role of Behavioral Health can be an integral part of a patients care team, supporting both the patient and provider. This training will provide the foundational skills needed to best serve this patient population.

Presenters: TBD - local experts

Learning objectives include:

  • Evaluate and diagnose opioid use disorder within various service settings

  • Understand the role of behavioral health as part of team-based care

  • Understand the intersection between social determinants of health, substance use disorders, and trauma.

  • Demonstrate an understanding of trauma-informed care and harm reduction principles, along with their impact on patient well-being and ability to sustain in treatment.
