This 8-hour course prepares nurses and other medical staff to manage office-based addiction treatment with buprenorphine and naltrexone.
This course will prepare nurses and other key members of the multidisciplinary care team to deliver medication for opioid use disorder (MOUD), such as buprenorphine and naltrexone, using a chronic care management model. Topics covered will include the science of addiction as a brain disorder, the pharmacotherapy of medications used to treat opioid and alcohol use disorders (current standard of care), and practical tools for implementing these treatment modalities into an office-based setting and for supporting physicians or other clinicians as part of a care team. Attendees will learn to screen patients for substance use disorders, initiate medication, and provide ongoing care and counseling.
Please note that you must have your camera turned on so we can see you in order to be eligible for continuing education credits.
