Webinar Description

This 8-hour continuing education course is designed to equip healthcare professionals with the essential knowledge, skills, and competencies needed to diagnose and treat Substance Use Disorders (SUDs) effectively. The course aligns with the Drug Enforcement Administration's (DEA) Medication-Assisted Treatment Education (MATE) program requirements. It focuses on key areas critical to providing culturally competent, evidence-based care.

Day 1 delves into the fundamentals of SUDs, emphasizing the importance of culturally competent collaboration and clinical practice. Participants will learn to utilize validated screening tools to identify SUDs and related risk factors, including mental health disorders. Additionally, the course explores the complex terrain of co-occurring disorders and the initiation and management of FDA-approved medications for SUDs. Special attention is given to individual variations in medication responses.

This course is designed to measure changes in learner competence, performance, and, ultimately, patient and community health. Through scenario-based assessments, case studies, and post-course evaluations, participants will understand SUDs deeply and acquire practical skills to provide comprehensive, patient-centered care while adhering to risk evaluation and mitigation strategies.
By the end of the course, healthcare professionals will be better prepared to prevent, recognize, and care for individuals with SUDs, including those with concurrent pain and psychiatric and medical co-morbidities. This training will empower participants to positively impact patient outcomes and contribute to the well-being of the communities they serve.
