Description

This course comprises the first half of the eight-hour buprenorphine waiver course.

ALL REGISTRANTS MUST COMPLETE THE SECOND FOUR HOURS ONLINE AFTER THIS EVENT. After the event, you will be sent a link to complete the second part of the eight-hour waiver training. You must complete the last four hours within 30 days of this training event and pass the online test, or you will be required to retake the full eight hours of training.

The full eight-hour waiver course prepares physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants to prescribe buprenorphine to treat opioid use disorder in their office. 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. The course fulfills 8 hours of the training needed to obtain a waiver to prescribe buprenorphine. The Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 (DATA 2000) requires physicians to complete 8 hours of approved training in order to be eligible for a waiver, and nurse practitioners and physician assistants to complete 24 hours. 

Check-in for the course will be from 7:30-8:00 am, and the course will run from 8:00am -12:00pm

This is an in-person training. There will not be an option to attend via webinar.
