This course covers all medications and treatments for opioid use disorder. This course also provides eight hours of required education* to obtain the waiver to prescribe buprenorphine by using interactive, case-based learning to teach evidence-based practices.

Designed for:

  • Physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants who wish to obtain a waiver to prescribe buprenorphine in office-based treatment of opioid use disorders.
  • Clinicians and healthcare team members working with physicians who prescribe buprenorphine in office-based treatment of opioid use disorders.

You will learn how to:

  • Summarize the clinical pharmacology, efficacy, and safety of methadone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone in treating opioid use disorders
  • Identify and assess patients who are appropriate for treatment with medications for an opioid use disorder in an office-based setting
  • Describe procedures for initiating, stabilizing, maintaining, monitoring, and modifying treatment of patients on buprenorphine or naltrexone
  • Summarize the assessment and management of patients with psychiatric and medical co-morbidities associated with opioid use disorders
  • Describe unique issues of treating adolescents, young adults, pregnant, and postpartum patients maintained on medications for opioid use disorders
  • Apply for a waiver to prescribe buprenorphine to patients with opioid use disorder

This is an 8-hour blended course combining 4 hours of online learning followed by 4 hours of live learning. Registration will give you access to the online portion of the course.

This course also meets LARA's requirement for 3 hours of continuing medical education in pain and symptom management.

In addition, for physicians participating in the BCN HMO Commercial Network, primary care providers who obtain a buprenorphine waiver between February 5 - December 31, 2018, in targeted counties are eligible to receive $1,500 through the Medication Assisted Treatment Reward. This incentive applies only to providers who currently do not have a buprenorphine waiver.
