MAT Provider Support Learning Collaborative Webinar Series

About the Training
Illinois has been affected by the opioid epidemic, much like the rest of the country. There have been significant efforts to increase Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) in the state, but questions still surround MAT. The Illinois Primary Health Care Association is excited to announce the upcoming Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) Provider Support Learning Collaborative. This learning collaborative will provide insight into best practices, how to treat SUD in special populations, establishing office work flows, referral and networking coordination, and several other topics. 

Participants will have the opportunity to hear from colleagues around the state and each session will be followed by a peer-to peer Q&A opportunity. 

This series is designed for Clinical Providers (MD/DO, NP, PA, RN, LCSW, LCPC, and Psychologists), Peer Recovery Specialists, and Care Coordinators. For more information contact Staci Ashmore, sashmore@iphca.org.

About the Training
In 2019, almost half of physicians report experiencing burnout, and data suggest that other healthcare professionals experience similarly high levels.  The costs of burnout to provider well-being, patient care, and the healthcare system are much too great to ignore. Join Dr. Audrey Stillerman from UIC's Office of Community Engagement and Lara Altman of the Illinois ACEs Response Collaborative to learn about acknowledging and understanding burnout and moving towards wellness.  The presentation will include an overview of the history and current definitions surrounding clinician burnout as well as an introduction to multi-level strategies for prevention and intervention.  This webinar is relevant for all those in the healthcare field, both clinical staff and administrators.

Maximizing Mental Health Resources in Primary Care
Date: November 21, 2019
Time: 10:00 a.m. (Central)
Location: Webinar

About the Training
Forty-two million U.S. adults live with a chronic physical illness and a mental health condition. Untreated mental illnesses negatively impact overall patient health and quality of life. For instance, patients with depression are 3x more likely to be medically non-compliant. Symptoms of depression and anxiety such as fatigue, lack of motivation and social withdrawal can hinder a patient’s adherence to a medication regimen. Moreover, 1 of 5 hospital stays have either a primary or secondary diagnosis of a mental health condition. Patients with an untreated mental illness are often turning to inpatient or urgent care rather than seeking appropriate mental health treatment.
