The Role of CRSs in an Interdisciplinary Team

About this event:

The benefit of being a part of an interdisciplinary team (IDT) in healthcare settings is that anyone can use their own role to improve the quality of care for the patient, especially in those who have a substance use disorder. This training will inform CRSs & CPSs on how to use IDT meetings to improve communication about the patients’ needs, participate in  planning for the patients’ treatment, and how they can use their own role to improve care for the patient.
