Performance-in-Practice (PIP)

Improving Clinical Practice with Patients who have Opioid Use Disorder (OUD)

The American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry and PCSS-MOUD are excited to offer an updated 2022 Performance-In-Practice activity to help you and your practice treat opioid use disorder. The PIP has been revised to provide up-to-date information and guidance, and now offers an optional 25-question Self-Assessment Exam.

A PIP activity is a Performance Improvement CME (PI CME) activity designed to assist physicians, PAs, NPs and RNs and other Health Care professionals to determine and address individual practice gaps through a performance improvement plan designed to increase competence, performance, and patient outcomes. The PIP will walk you through Three Stages (A, B, and C) in a process to enhance practice of the treatment of patients with opioid use disorder. It is recommended that the PIP take 3 months or more to complete, though it may take significantly longer (as long as deemed necessary to plan, implement, and evaluate your educational plan). This PIP follows the AMA-standardized three-stage process of a PI CME. It includes the following stages:

  • Stage A: Data Collection: Assess your practice behaviors.
  • Stage B: Application and Intervention: Develop and follow your own improvement plan.
  • Stage C: Reassessment and Review: Reassess your practice to measure the effects of your improvement plan (post intervention measurement).
