Upcoming National Webinar: Strategies for Enhancing SUD Treatment Workforce Skills (June 28, 2017)
As part of CMS’s Medicaid Innovation Accelerator Program (IAP) Reducing Substance Use Disorders (SUD) program area, we are sharing what we have learned from working with states on SUD delivery system reform through our national learning webinars. We invite you to join our next national learning webinar on Wednesday, June 28, 2017 from 3:30PM – 5:00 PM EDT.
Our June webinar entitled “Strategies for Enhancing SUD Treatment Workforce Skills” will feature state and provider partners discussing their experiences creating opportunities for providers to enhance their competency, including using patient assessment tools in treatment planning and coordinating care for patients receiving Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT). Strategies presented on this webinar will be applicable to a variety of states and providers interested in augmenting their SUD workforce skills. On this webinar:
- California will describe how they increased provider competence using the American Society of Addiction Medicine Criteria patient needs assessment through county-directed training efforts;
- Missouri will share how they established training requirements and educational resources for counselors working with MAT clients to enhance care quality and support client treatment needs; and
- Rhode Island will discuss two statewide initiatives that expanded SUD treatment access and provider competencies by establishing new care coordination standards for working with clients receiving MAT.
