Community Event: Quality Medical Care for People Who Use Drugs

January 14 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Brought to you by the National Council for Behavioral Health

What qualifies as quality medical care for patients experiencing consequences of drug use?

Physicians are in a unique position to support and advance recovery efforts for individuals experiencing consequences from substance use and addiction. People who use drugs present a set of unique set of challenges to health care providers, from increased risk of mortality and development of chronic medical conditions, to the co-occurrence of mental health conditions and trauma histories.

On January 14, join the National Council for Behavioral Health and the Providers Clinical Support System (PCSS) as we welcome a panel of leading Seattle-based physicians to learn how mainstream health care is effectively intersecting with the harm reduction community to increase the quality of medical care. Physicians will share real case examples from the frontlines on how practices of compassion and forming partnerships with local harm reduction services has led to exponential gains in patient recovery and wellbeing.
