A Resource for Healthcare and Social Services Professionals
June 30, 2022
7:30 am–8:00 am ET
This training will provide an overview of identification and management of substance use disorders in the older adult population.
Boston Medical Center's Grayken Center for Addiction TTA is pleased to announce a comprehensive new training series aimed at advancing addiction treatment among health care professionals. This recurring series consists of 16 hours of training covering 20 topics. You can attend all sessions or select specific ones.
Foundational topics in this series include an introduction to substance use disorders (SUDs) and stigma, screening for SUDs, motivational interviewing, harm reduction, and medications for opioid use disorder (MOUD). Clinically-focused sessions will review alcohol, benzodiazepine, and stimulant use disorders, in addition to MOUD implementation strategies, co-occurring disorders, and medical considerations for persons using substances. Population-specific trainings will discuss SUD as it relates to adolescents and young adults, older adults, peripartum persons, and those with a brain injury. Specialty topics include cannabis, criminal-legal involvement, overdose education and naloxone distribution, pain management, lab testing/toxicology screening, and regulatory issues relating to MOUD.
These trainings, formerly used for advanced practice providers (APPs) applying for their DEA X-waiver, will continue to count towards the additional 16 hours required for APPs.
Please note that you must have your camera on so we can see you in order to be eligible for continuing education credits and for this training to count towards your 16 hour X-Waiver requirement.
