Engaging Patients Living with Substance Use Disorders

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
