This conference focuses on the requisite knowledge, skills and abilities for any nurse who cares for persons with substance use, abuse and addictions. Providing patient centered care through prevention, screening, treatment and recovery services is best brought about when interdisciplinary teams work together to accomplish effective and successful patient care outcomes. Interdisciplinary collaboration utilizes the Institute Of Medicine’s core competencies of evidence-based practice, informatics, and quality assurance to promote positive lifestyle changes. Attendees will increase their skills and knowledge base for collaborative practice with healthcare colleagues to further patient centered care for those with substance use disorders.
