Opioid Education - Idaho Interprofessional Student Conference
August 9, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - August 10, 2019 @ 4:45 pm MDT
This is an opportunity for students to learn about opioid use disorder diagnosis, prevention, and treatment from health professionals representing a variety of disciplines while connecting with peers in a variety of health profession programs! The conference is open to all college level health profession students.
The conference will include:
- A strong conference kick-off: Conference registration opens at noon on Friday. The conference will kick-off at 12:30 pm with an overview of Idaho of opioid use disorder issues and trends from a substance abuse service provider, followed by a pharmacist and physician assistant with opioid treatment experience. ECHO Idaho will present a live panel demonstration led by an expert team that uses multi-point video conferencing to conduct virtual clinics with community providers. Snacks will be served during the afternoon break.
- An engaging Friday evening reception: Mingle with interprofessional peers and mentors, engage with our sponsors and exhibitors, and win cool prizes! Heavy appetizers will be served.
- A spectacular Saturday roundup: Starting with a keynote speaker with a personal story to tell. Learn about an Idaho mother and son who battled opioid addiction at a professional and personal level. Learn from experienced providers from different disciplines about screening, treatment, alternatives to pain medication, and interprofessional teamwork. Hear from a panel of young practitioners just out of school or residency discussing challenges and celebrations. Breakfast, lunch, and snacks during breaks will be provided.
- Closing and future networking. Hear from Idaho’s three Area Health Education Centers. We don’t want it to end and neither will you, so we’ll also explore ways to keep interprofessional peers and mentors connected after the conference is over.
