MAT Module 3 - Substance Use Navigators

via Independent


This learning module is one of a series of four modules produced in conjunction with California BRIDGE. The goal of this series is to educate inpatient physicians on the identification, treatment, and follow up needs for patients with opioid use disorder. Interdisciplinary treatment of substance use disorders is critical for proper care delivery. A very important aspect of this is the role of the Substance Use Navigator. The goal of the course is to describe that role for other team members and to train new substance use navigators on what is involved with their position. This will be performed via a presentation that incorporates basic information along with case examples.

Disclosure of Relevant Financial Relationships

As a provider accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the University of California, Davis, Health must ensure balance, independence and objectivity in all its continuing medical education (CME) activities to promote improvements in health care and not proprietary interests of a commercial interest. The CME provider controls all decisions related to identification of CME needs, determination of educational objectives, selection and presentation of content, selection of all persons and organizations that will be in a position to control the content, selection of educational methods and evaluation of the activity. Course directors, planning committee members, presenters, authors, moderators, panel members and others in a position to control the content of this activity are required to disclose relevant financial relationships with commercial interests related to the subject matter of this educational activity. Learners are able to assess the potential for commercial bias when complete disclosure, resolution of conflicts of interest, and acknowledgment of commercial support are provided prior to the activity. Informed learners are the final safeguards in assuring that a CME activity is independent from the influence or control of commercial interests. We believe these mechanisms contribute to the transparency and accountability of CME.

The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education defines a commercial interest as any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods and services consumed by, or used on patients.
