The goal is by engaging with healthcare providers in this region, and providing resources, that we can expand access to care for patients who need it, and improve the experience for a group of patients who have traditionally been marginalized.
Jointly Sponsored by Ware/Belchertown Healing Communities Study Group, The Western Massachusetts Training Consortium, Baystate Department of Pharmacy and Baystate Interprofessional Continuing Education
This course was designed for healthcare providers in the Ware & Belchertown region to include surrounding communities where residents from these towns might seek care.
After participating in this education activity, attendees should be able to:
1) Discuss the status of the opioid epidemic here in the Quaboag Hill region and some of the unique barriers to addressing it.
2) Explain the basic physiologic underpinnings of addiction and how drugs can hijack the reward circuitry in the brain.
3) Describe the impact of early substance use on the developing brain & how it may increase risk of substance use disorder later in life.
4) Illustrate how stigma might negatively impact care for patients who use drugs.
5) Discuss the rationale for initiating treatment for opioid use disorder when people are in the hospital.
6) Explain the role of trauma in the initiation & continuation of substance use disorder.
