In these short rapid-fire presentations, multiple speakers highlight approaches to managing issues related to behavioral health in the practice environment.

Harm Reduction, Reducing Mental Health, and Substance Use Disorder Stigma
Stigma for mental health and substance use disorder patients is prevalent in health care. As the overdose rate continues to rise, proven strategies are needed to improve outcomes for these vulnerable populations. Harm reduction is an evidence-based approach to preventing negative outcomes for people who use drugs. This session outlines project efforts to reduce the stigma for patients with mental health and substance use disorders by educating staff on harm reduction practices.

Evidence of the Contribution of the Nurse in Addictions Care
This session addresses the role and experience of office-based addiction treatment (OBAT) nurses. Focus includes the impact OBAT nurses provided in working with interprofessional providers in primary practice across three key areas: presence of nurse sensitive indictors, stabilization time in patients taking buprenorphine, and influence of nursing on time to recovery.

Virtual Nurse Visits for Treatment of Opioid Withdrawal
This session addresses the role of the nurse in treatment pathways for opioid withdrawal during telehealth nurse visits.
