Regis­tra­tion is now open for Addressing Substance Use Disorder: The Path Forward, a virtual confer­ence on substance use disorder, on October 12, 2021. 

Alcohol and Drug misuse continues to exert a signif­i­cant negative impact on society. The CDC reports that more than 93,000 people died of a drug overdose in the U.S. last year — a record number that reflects a rise of nearly 30% from 2019. Drug and alcohol misuse along with substance use disorder is increasing being recog­nized as a public health issue with multiple and overlap­ping causes. 

This one-day infor­ma­tive and educa­tional confer­ence is hosted by the Washington State Nursing Care Quality Assur­ance Commis­sion (NCQAC).

At this virtual event, you’ll learn about: #

  • Overcoming stigma, shifting from exclu­sion and blame toward support and compassion
  • Trends in providing access to treatment
  • Integrated care and the use of medica­tion-assisted treatment
  • The growing use of peer support services

In addition, presen­ta­tions focused on Caring for the Caregiver will address personal recovery and resilience, health promo­tion and self-care. Providing quality patient care requires a healthy workforce, and the past couple years have increased stress for everyone.

Six Contin­uing Educa­tion hours will be offered with attendance.
