Opioid Conference.

Date: 26-Apr-2019
Capacity: Not Set (0% booked)


Oregon Area Health Education Centers invite practicing health professionals, health care administrators, health profession students, and all those interested to attend the first Oregon AHEC Opioid Symposium Live streamed from OHSU South Waterfront Campus, Knight Cancer Research Building, Room 1011 to four sites throughout Oregon - (details below). The audience will hear about the importance of opioid use disorder recognition and treatment, as well as furthering their knowledge regarding opioid use disorder. This event will provide educational outreach on what kinds of opioid use disorder recognition and treatment programs are available in rural and underserved settings.

Over the past year, four of our regional AHEC Centers (Oregon Pacific, Northeast Oregon, Southwest Oregon, and Cascades East) participated in community-based opioid educational and training activities. Each regional Center will present on the activities and programs that are available in their regions. In addition to these speakers, there will be three more renowned subject matter experts presenting their unique approaches to diagnosing and treating opioid use disorder from a rural or underserved perspective. We will also get an update on the state of Oregon’s Opioid Task Force.
