QC Lunch & Learn Webinar: Opioid Dependence vs. Addiction: Different Conditions, Different Approaches
To develop an effective clinical response to the rampant misuse of opioids, it is helpful to understand the differences between opioid dependence and opioid addiction - and to consider the implications of those differences.
Participants in this webinar will learn to identify risk factors and distinguish the difference between opioid dependence and addiction, as well as how to best respond to patient needs across these clinical presentations. We will review techniques for screening, assessment, and diagnosis as well as strategies for patient engagement and motivational enhancement for implementing the safest plans of care.
