Upcoming Webinars

Opioid Treatment and Rural Health Clinics
Wednesday, August 29, 2018
11:00 a.m. Pacific; 12:00 p.m. Mountain; 1:00 p.m. Central; 2:00 p.m. Eastern

Access to effective treatment is critical to addressing the morbidity and mortality associated with opioid addiction. Rural communities are particularly vulnerable due to limited access to effective treatment. Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) of opioid addiction remains the gold-standard of care. Rural Health Clinics are well-suited to providing office-based opioid addiction treatment with MAT. Presenter John Lopes, PA-C, will discuss the principles of MAT and how to implement a program in your clinic. In addition to his subject matter expertise, John spent many years working in a Rural Health Clinic in Illinois.
