WEBINAR: Substance Use Recovery Focus in a Medical Setting



Course Curriculum
This webinar will focus on verbal interaction strategies that physicians, nurses and other healthcare providers should implement with patients experiencing substance use challenges.  Ms. Campbell will focus on best practices healthcare providers can implement, specifically, with first contact in the emergency department (ED), and will show how these best practices can improve overall patient wellness. She will discuss the importance of language how the words chosen can often change the tone of patient interactions for better or worse. Additionally, identifying community resources and partners for these individuals can provide long-term support and, over time, reduces the likelihood of repeat hospital visits. Included in this discussion, Neil will share how the use of peer recovery coaches in hospital EDs and neonatal ICUs in their Georgia community has provided a direct line to substance use disorder support and connections to community-based recovery supports.

Learning Objectives 
At the conclusion of this session, the participants will be able to:
1. Demonstrate positive verbal cues that should be used to provide substance abuse support outside the ER. 
2. Discuss how to best work with community partners to provide connections between patients and recovery community support services. 
3. Identify hospital staff and peer service providers to implement a community-based peer support program within an emergency department setting. 
4. Discuss how to better understand the brain science of addiction as well as the recovery process for individuals with substance use challenges. 

Target Audience
This session is recommended for all staff involved in substance use, including opioid addiction prevention - CMOs, CNOs, physicians, nurses, pharmacy, quality and patient safety personnel, risk management staff, emergency preparedness employees, in-house counsel and other interested personnel.
