Building Capacity in the Integrated Health Workforce: A Focus on Substance Use Education
Building Capacity in the Integrated Health Workforce: A Focus on Substance Use Education - Tuesday, November 2, 3-4 p.m. ET

Learn how improved education for students across the integrated health field can more effectively address substance use challenges in the patient populations you serve and increase the effectiveness of your organization in our upcoming webinar.

Social workers and other mental health professionals are the bedrock of integrated primary care, mental health and substance use treatment services in the U.S. and play a critical role in curbing the opioid epidemic. Increasing competency requires providers to understand current substance use theoretical frameworks, evidence-based interventions and the numerous resources individuals with substance use challenges can access for support.

We will highlight key insights on building workforce capacity and learn about a recent 20-month initiative to better prepare social work students to address substance use challenges and related issues across a variety of health settings.

After attending this webinar, you will be able to:

- Identify the need to build capacity and strengthen workforce development of social
work students to address complex needs in diverse integrated care settings.

- Recognize the gaps in workforce preparedness for substance use integration and
opportunities to adapt training programs to stimulate growth in the workforce.

- Understand the key outcomes of the learning collaborative, including the impact on
capacity, competency, and training program adaptation for social work students.

Join the Center of Excellence for Integrated Health Solutions as we explore this initiative, led by the National Council for Mental Wellbeing, in collaboration with the New York Community Trust and Council on Social Work Education
