Target Audience

The target audience for this conference is community service providers and health professionals who would benefit from behavioral health education.

Description

The purpose of the training is to educate community service providers on opioid misuse, overdose and how to screen for high risk substance use. The increase in opioid misuse, overdose and high risk substance use results in a significant need for more behavioral health education to all professionals serving the community.

This opportunity will provide information on how to recognize an overdose, how to respond to an overdose and administer naloxone. It will also explain the basics of medication assisted treatment/recovery and an introduction on Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) and how to implement SBIRT.

Learning Objectives

  • List the individual and community impacts of opioid misuse.
  • Identify an evidence based strategy to screen and address substance misuse.
  • Identify appropriate opioid overdose recognition and response strategies.
