Superior offers several professional development and continuing education opportunities throughout the year. These events are designed to support providers and health care professionals by improving the quality of care, services and, ultimately, patient outcomes.
Psych Advice for The Pediatric Primary Care Provider
Children’s Health offers continuing education trainings from PCPs. Their series Psych Advice for the Pediatric Primary Care Provider aims increase children’s access to mental health care by increasing PCP’s knowledge and comfort in managing behavioral health concerns.
Pediatricians and their medical team will learn ways to assess and make simple diagnoses for common behavior/mental health concerns in children and adolescents. Tools learned in this educational series will lessen referrals to mental health practitioners for simple behavioral concerns and decrease the frequency of Emergency Department referrals.

CE Credits: Reducing Stigma Associated with OUD
To help health-care providers learn more about reducing stigma associated with Opioid Use Disorders (OUD), Dell Medical School | The University of Texas at Austin is offering Reducing Stigma Education Tools (ReSET). Negative stigma towards individuals living with addiction or OUD, whether conscious or not, can create a barrier for individuals accessing health care and receiving appropriate treatment. It can also contribute to feelings of shame, mistrust of providers, avoidance of health-care encounters and overall suboptimal health outcomes.

These modules are available at no cost to providers, and Continuing Education (CE) credits are also available for physicians, nurses, social workers and pharmacists.
