Big South/West Node Workshop at TxSUS 2023

TxSUS 2023: Connecting Texas to Accelerate Access

The PIs of the CTN Big South/West Node attended this year’s Texas Substance Use Symposium (TxSUS) for a panel titled, “Screening, Interventions and Collaborative Care Models for Increasing SUD Treatment in Primary Care.”

The panel session provided an overview and rationale of establishing primary care models for screening and interventions for SUD. The main objectives were to learn about (1) approaches for incorporating alcohol and drug screening into primary care practices, integrated with the electronic health record (EHR); (2) lessons learned from SUD collaborative care trials in primary care settings; and (3) establishing collaborative care models in Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC), including pharmacists, in SUD/OUD treatment and management.
