Considering Medication-Assisted Treatment
A Panel Discussion for Primary Care Providers
THURSDAY, JANUARY 31, 2019
UIC Health Sciences Campus-Rockford, 1601 Parkview Ave., Rockford, IL
Primary care providers are increasingly encountering opioid-addicted patients – often with not many local options for treatment.
If you were trained in Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT), could you better help your patients?
After this program, you should be able to:
- Identify what MAT entails, including suboxone and other medications
- Understand the process for becoming MAT-certified
- Define ways to integrate MAT into your current practice
- Recognize where to get advice and resources for MAT
Please register for the program online at go.uic.edu/MAT or by calling (815) 395-5935 by January 25, 2019.
This program includes dinner and 2 CME credits provided through Mercyhealth. There is no cost to attend this program for area health care professionals from any health system.
The presentation is a collaboration between the UIC Health Sciences Campus-Rockford and the Winnebago County Opioid Task Force.
