LOUD in Primary Care –  LOUD in PC Webinar – OUD & OAT for Non-Prescribers in Primary Care – Apr 18, 2024


As part of the LOUD in PC Collaborative, HQBC hosted two webinars in April for both prescribers and non-prescribers focused on the current state of the toxic drug crisis and how to best support clients who are seeking substance use disorder services. This webinar focused on supporting Primary Care team members who are non-prescribers and looking to increase their knowledge about opioid use disorder, available treatments, and effective harm reduction strategies.
