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.
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.
