Community Event: Collaboration in Crisis: Utilizing Peer Recovery Coach Support in the ED to Maximize Patient Outcomes

|Join the National Council for Mental Wellbeing and the Providers Clinical Support System (PCSS) Wednesday, May 26, as we welcome a leading South Carolina-based team to learn best practices for working with and integrating peer recovery coaches in hospital and emergency department (ED) settings.

· Identify team-based strategies to engage patients in the ED and after discharge.
· Discuss how recovery coaches and clinicians partner to support patients presenting in the ED with substance use-related concerns.
· Identify strategies to reduce stigma surrounding substance use among clinicians and hospital staff.
· Describe best practices for working with and integrating peers in hospital and ED settings.
