This two-part training is intended to provide eight hours of training for providers seeking to prescribe buprenorphine.
This eight-hour course prepares physicians, advanced practice nurses, and physician assistants to prescribe buprenorphine to treat opioid use disorder in their office and in the ED setting. The curriculum includes the science of addiction as a brain disorder, the pharmacology of buprenorphine, and the regulatory requirements around prescribing this medication. Attendees will learn to screen patients for treatment with buprenorphine and to manage the medication along with the patient's other medical needs in an office setting such as a primary care clinic.
