Larks Restaurant, 200 N Riverside Ave, Medford, OR
People living with substance use disorders (SUDs), including people who inject drugs, often delay seeking health care and underuse healthcare services overall, despite bearing a high burden of infections and overdose. Engaging with health care is an opportunity to reduce their risk of illness and death, as well as begin a pathway to recovery.
Clinicians and other health professionals are welcome to attend this free training event, which will improve the ability of attendees to:
• Discuss the role of stigma in building rapport with patients with SUDs
• Employ Harm Reduction principles with patients with SUDs
• Recognize when to employ motivational interviewing with patients with SUDs
Dinner will be provided for all attendees who register
