Webinar Description: Once we’ve successfully managed the organizational and clinical steps to implement treatment for patients with OUD, we need to consider how to best sustain this new service. How do we ensure continued access to high-quality care for our patients, including those with on-going challenges? What does treatment look like for patients on their first visit and follow-up visits? This session will discuss key considerations for patient initiation (induction) and on-going visits, including lab guidelines. We will additionally address the clinical management of patients with continued opioid use, poly-substance use, and comorbid mental health conditions.
- Consider OUD medication selection, including appropriateness of buprenorphine, long-acting injectable naltrexone, and methadone, based on patient assessment and choice
- Determine key considerations for patient initiation visit (induction) and follow up visits, including lab guidelines
- Explain considerations in managing of more complicated cases: continued opioid use, poly-substance use and comorbid conditions
