As the opioid crisis continues to grow in rural Tennessee, the need for best practices to appropriately address opioid use disorder in patients is increasingly important. In this one hour webinar, Aaron Williams of the National Center for Behavioral Health will address the scope of the opioid problem, why the needs of rural health centers differ from that of urban and metropolitan health centers in addressing the crisis, and the correlation between opioid use and HIV transmission.
