Recording and PPT slides unavailable for this training.

About the webinar: This training is designed to capture the attention of Hispanic/Latino providers about the problems of Opioid Use Disorders in our population so that they will take into consideration dealing with addiction issues in their practice. The huge addiction treatment gap that exists in our field expands exponentially in the Latino population. Evidence based pharmacotherapy, although the treatment of choice in opioid use disorders, is often not an option in the present treatment scenario. We need adequately educated healthcare providers to help us end this.

Educational objectives:

  1. Distinguish some epidemiology of Opioid Use Disorders in Hispanic/Latinos.
  2. Recognize basic neurobiology, types of opioids and their effects.
  3. Assess the significance of the treatment access gap.
  4. Validate appropriate treatment modalities, with emphasis on those available for primary care settings.
