SWACH Launches Opioid Training Video Series
As part of the regional opioid crisis response effort in Southwest Washington, health care professionals, systems leaders and other stakeholders must support a culture shift in how we think about, treat and support those experiencing opioid use disorder. To support SWACH partners in the journey toward culture shift, we created these series of videos with local and regional experts. In the videos, expert speakers share data, insights and strategies around understanding and addressing the opioid epidemic.
