Webinar Description: Once we’ve successfully managed the organizational and clinical steps to initiate treatment for patients with OUD, we need to consider how to best sustain this new service and ensure continued access to high-quality care for our most challenging patients. This session will review long-term staffing structure and needs as buprenorphine (or other pharmacotherapies) become part of the treatment landscape in the community. The session will also review the challenges in delivering buprenorphine treatment to a range of patient populations, including those with comorbid mental health and/or physical health conditions, pregnant patients, those with co-occurring pain, and poor responders.
