**During registration, participants will have the option to attend both days or only one. 

Day 1: Trauma-Informed Care and Motivational Interviewing
Tuesday, November 27 from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.

Presenter: Elizabeth Guroff, MA, LCMFT, Director Trauma-Informed Services, National Council for Behavioral Health 

The experience of trauma has widespread impacts, leading to or exacerbating mental illness, substance us and physical health conditions. Unfortunately, despite best efforts, the very services and systems designed to help people become healthy can be re-traumatizing. National Council experts will help health centers operationalize plans for being trauma-informed. Topics to be covered in this training include:
  • Understanding Trauma
  • Trauma and Addictions
  • Paradigm Shift- changing the question from “What’s wrong with you?” to “What happened to you?”
  • Becoming Trauma-Informed in a Primary Care Setting
  • Infusing Trauma-Informed Care into your Daily Work
  • Trauma-Informed Motivational Interviewing Techniques
  • Compassion Fatigue and Secondary Traumatic Stress in the Work Force

Day 2: Medication Assisted Treatment of Opioid Use Disorder, American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM)
Wednesday, November 28 from 8 a.m. until 5:30 p.m.

Presenter: Kirk Moberg, MD, PhD, FASAM and Mary McMasters, MD, DFASAM, American Society of Addiction Medicine

This 8-hour course covers treating opioid use disorder using interactive, case-based learning and evidence-based practices. For physicians, this course will provide the 8 training hours needed to obtain a DATA 2000 waiver to prescribe buprenorphine in office-based treatment of opioid use disorders. If Tennessee’s buprenorphine prescribing law changes in the future to permit NPs and PAs to prescribe buprenorphine, NPs and PAs can utilize this 8 hour training to satisfy a portion of the 24 required hours of training. ASAM is an approved provider by CSAT/SAMHSA of DATA 2000 training. For more information, click here.
Upon completion of this educational activity participants should be able to:
  • Summarize the clinical pharmacology, efficacy, and safety of methadone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone in treating opioid use disorders
  • Identify and assess patients who are appropriate for treatment with medications for an opioid use disorder in an office-based setting
  • Describe procedures for initiating, stabilizing, maintaining, monitoring, and modifying treatment of patients on buprenorphine or naltrexone
  • Summarize the assessment and management of patients with psychiatric and medical co-morbidities associated with opioid use disorders
  • Apply for a waiver to prescribe buprenorphine to patients with opioid use disorder

Continuing Medical Education Credit for the Medication Assisted Treatment of Opioid Use Disorder (Day 2)
The American Society of Addiction Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
