A 6-hour training with Ginger Ross, BA, CRSW, NCPRSS &  Bret Smith, CRSW, NCPRSS, CPS

February 16 & 17, 2023

8:30am-11:45am (daily)

PRESENTATION: Across the country, emergency departments are treating rising numbers of patients harmed by using alcohol, opioids, methamphetamine, and other substances. Between 2006 and 2014, emergency room visits for alcohol and substance use disorders increased about 75%. Once these individuals have been medically cleared, they are often discharged absent of appropriate support or treatment to address their addiction. Individuals and families are handed packages of information to sort through and make follow-up phone calls for potential treatment. With today's understanding of addiction and recovery, we know that there is only a brief window of opportunity when someone is ready and/or willing to move toward recovery. Today, with the rise and recognition of peer recovery coaches, more hospitals are implementing this role into their care model to improve outcomes. The Recovery coach role in the ED carries different responsibilities than in a community setting. This training addresses those roles and responsibilities.

Upon completion of the event participants understand:

      • Understand the environment of the ED
      • Develop skills to work beside the medical team and with patients
      • Know the roles and responsibilities of the Recovery Coach working in the Emergency Department
      • Use of Motivational Interviewing in the ED
      • Understanding the medical team and compassion fatigue
      • Personal self-care
