This program has reached attendance capacity and is closed.  

Goal:

This interprofessional full day symposium is designed to assist healthcare professionals become more familiar with the issues and treatment of those with OUD.  In creating an interprofessional forum, we hope to embrace a team approach to a region which has experienced a high incidence of OUD.  The goal of this program is to help close some of those gaps and provide healthcare professionals the knowledge to better meet the needs of their patients.  

Why Attend?

The prevalence of opioid use disorder (OUD) in Massachusetts is significantly higher than national estimates and fatalities in Western Massachusetts are staggering.  Enrollment in medication assisted therapy positively impacts outcomes.  Yet a small portion receive treatment.  Stigma against patients with addiction in healthcare is common and can translate into suboptimal treatment.  Join us at ths interprofessional symposium to increase awareness and learn about how we can work together to better treat patients with devastating disease.
