Pre-conference learning opportunities

Prior to the start of the conference, we will be offering two supplemental learning activities, Creating safer care and Social needs in healthcare: Turning evidence into practice. One of these offerings can be added to discounted registration or purchased in registration package pricing. Both events will include continuing education credits separate from those for attending the conference.

Information on learning objectives, instructors, presenters, and more can be found on the additional offerings page.

To register for either of these offerings, please register for the conference. During the registration process, you will be able to select your choice of training.

Creating safer care

We will be hosting a special pre-conference, in-person training on creating safer care for pregnant and parenting people who use drugs (PWUD). Access to quality maternal healthcare and social support without the fear of criminalization is crucial, not only for racial and health equity but also for overdose prevention. Overdose is a leading cause of maternal mortality in the United States. The good news is that harm reduction strategies centering the health, autonomy, and dignity of pregnant and parenting people who use drugs improve maternal health outcomes.

This training will address the urgent need for healthcare workers to adopt a family-focused, whole-person approach to working with pregnant and parenting people who use drugs.  This training, based on the Creating safe care: Supporting pregnant and parenting patients who use drugs toolkit, focuses on five core competencies: relationship building, screening, treatment planning, reporting, providers as partners.

Social needs in healthcare: Turning evidence into practice

Housing and food insecurity, lack of employment and transportation, social isolation — factors outside the health care system — drive so much of people’s health. In recognition, healthcare entities and policymakers are prioritizing investments and putting staff time and energy towards addressing patients’ social needs. But what is the best way to do this? What does the evidence say about what works and what doesn’t? This three-hour symposium will feature national complex care experts, including clinical leaders, policymakers, researchers, community-based organizations, and advocates. They will share what they are seeing on the ground, what research is showing us about the most effective strategies for addressing social needs in healthcare, and how they are translating evidence into practice.
