Webinar Description: Have you considered prescribing Medications for Addiction Treatment (MAT) to treat your patients with opioid use disorder (OUD)? Have you wondered what is required to prescribe buprenorphine or other pharmacotherapies? If you answered yes to either or both of these questions, this PCSS Exchange session could provide you with the critical information and steps in determining the readiness of your site and clinical leadership. Initiating Medications for Opioid Use Disorder (MOUD) into your setting requires that you understand how pharmacotherapies work, including buprenorphine and its various formulations. Programs must think through the business case for service expansion and strategize how to best engage key staff.
- Summarize the financial and clinical considerations of incorporating MOUD into their practice
- Describe the pharmacology of medications for opioid use disorder
- Identify the three FDA-approved medications to treat opioid use disorder and describe the specific formulations of buprenorphine
- Identify resources targeted to different disciplines (e.g., counselors, social workers, clinic administrators, etc.) and resources for prescribers (PCSS and others) to guide implementation of MOUD
