PCSS-MOUD has the resources and training you need
to meet the needs of your patients.

PCSS-MOUD is a national training and clinical mentoring project developed in response to the opioid use disorder crisis. Made up of a coalition and led by the American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry (AAAP), PCSS-MOUD’s education and training resources are developed for healthcare providers and professionals. The overarching goal of PCSS-MOUD is to provide the most effective evidence-based clinical practices in the prevention of OUD through proper opioid prescribing practices, identifying patients with OUD, and the treatment of opioid use disorder.

Clinical Guidances

“Clinical practice guidelines are systematically developed statements to assist practitioner and patient decisions about appropriate health care for specific clinical circumstances.”(Institute of Medicine, 1990)

“Insights from the Front Line” introduces San Francisco’s first ever hospital-based harm reduction program, led by Sophie and Patty with the Addiction Care Team at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital. Together, alongside episode host, Leah Fraimow-Wong, they will reflect on the challenges they experienced with changing culture around addiction care in the hospital and address strategies to combat stigma and staff burnout. They will share real-life impacts of patients who participated in their program and explore exciting new projects for hospital-based harm reduction in the near future!
Hospitalization is a known opportunity to offer addiction services, including harm reduction. The philosophy of harm reduction and harm reduction supplies can be incorporated into healthcare settings. We describe two approaches to implementing harm reduction in a hospital setting, with a focus on obtaining support, implementation, challenges, and lessons learned.
This presentation will review the origins and trajectory of the current opioid epidemic, now described as being in its fourth wave. Considered will be the current epidemiology of the epidemic, particularly opioid-overdose related fatalities; the effectiveness of and potential gaps in current harm reduction strategies such as overdose education and naloxone distribution and drug checking services that provide fentanyl and xylazine test strips or on-site testing; principal barriers to expansion of buprenorphine prescribing among health care providers; and medication for opioid use disorder treatment initiation and engagement; and the science underscoring the significance of co-occurring tobacco use disorder among persons addicted to opioids and entering MOUD treatment.
