Webinar Description: This session will map out concrete clinical and patient flow activities and consider issues of documentation, charting, and recommended metrics. We will discuss steps for conducting a site walk-through in advance to ensure behavioral health and prescriber staff have completed the necessary certifications and trainings to deliver buprenorphine, or other pharmacotherapies, in integrated settings. We will review the range of possible team players – clinic leadership, prescribers, nurses, counselors, clinicians, intake coordinators, receptionists, peer support specialists – and discuss the value of a shared vision and delineation of roles and tasks.
