Part 3: Technology-Based Supervision: Extending the Reach of Clinical Supervisors

Part 4: Telehealth in Urban Settings: Why it is Right for Your Practice!

July 28, 2016

Description: Telehealth is a rapidly evolving method of delivering services, sometimes associated only with rural geographies as an alternative to traditional health care interaction for reasons such as reducing travel times and increasing provider options for consumers. However, the benefits of telehealth can be equally experienced in urban settings and assist with addressing barriers to health care. As telehealth progresses to be synonymous with health care, it is urgent that all health care providers consider its utility. This webinar will showcase how urban environments can (and do) benefit from telehealth services and feature real examples of telehealth achievements in urban settings.

Participants: This webinar is designed for health care and human service providers working in urban environments. This includes physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurse midwives, nurses, counselors, social workers, case managers, and other staff who interact with patients, who work in multiple types of settings including primary care, geriatric care, maternal and child health care, Head Start programs, STD/HIV and reproductive health care, mental health, addictions, health departments, hospitals, health centers, schools, and community health settings.

Part 5: Opioid Prescribing: Save Practice, Changing Lives

August 3, 2016

Description: More people died from drug overdoses in 2014 than in any year on record. The majority of drug overdose deaths (more than six out of ten) involve an opioid. Since 1999, the rate of overdose deaths involving opioids nearly quadrupled. From 2000 to 2014 nearly half a million people died from drug overdoses. 78 Americans die every day from an opioid overdose. We now know that overdoses from prescription opioid pain relievers are a driving factor in the 15-year increase in opioid overdose deaths. Since 1999, the amount of prescription opioids sold in the U.S. nearly quadrupled, yet there has not been an overall change in the amount of pain that Americans report. Deaths from prescription opioids-drugs like oxycodone, hydrocodone, and methadone-have also quadrupled since 1999. Please attend this webinar if you want to be part of the solution to the opioid public health crisis by learning essential clinical knowledge and methods for safe opioid prescribing. Attend this webinar if you want to:

  • Counsel patients and caregivers about safer use of opioids;
  • Describe strategies for diagnosing and managing opioid-addicted patients; and
  • Practice techniques for safe opioid prescribing.

Participants: This webinar is designed for health care and human service providers including physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurse midwives, nurses, counselors, social workers, case managers, and other staff who interact with patients, who work in multiple types of settings including primary care, geriatric care, maternal and child health care, Head Start programs, STD/HIV and reproductive health care, mental health, addictions, health departments, hospitals, health centers, schools, and community health settings.

From Zero to 60: Medical-Legal Partnership Fundamentals & Strategies
