This conference will focus on the integration efforts that support practical applications of comprehensive screening. Professionals working in these areas will be able to increase their knowledge of logistics updates in an interprofessional environment. These case-based logistical updates are designed to assist in creating comprehensive screening protocols in primary care, substance use treatment, and infectious disease and sexual health clinics.
