Substance Abuse Prevention, Education and Management Through Interprofessional Collaboration
Presenters in this track at the Nexus Summit 2020 describe a number of interprofessional practice and education approaches in clinical settings, academic programs, and community-campus partnerships for improving prevention and care for at-risk people who seek opioids and other substances for self treatment of chronic pain. Sessions include: two seminars describing face-to-face, online and simulation IPE activities, and three lightning talk discussions. Some presentations describe how activities pivoted to new online formats in response to COVID-19.
