Medication Treatment for OUD in Residency Clinics

September 24, 2021

This training will help prepare the DFMCH clinics to offer medications for opioid use disorder by providing targeting training in the diagnosis and management of opioid use disorder and helping to design clinic-specific protocols to support this care. Faculty will complete MAT training prior to this event. The workshop will detail the logistical, legal and prescribing challenges common to MAT, and practical tips to overcome these barriers. We will also work with clinic staff (including RNs and possibly LCSWs and MAs) at this event to design clinic protocols with interprofessional input.

Target Audience

This program is designed for physicians who treat patients with opioid use disorder.

Learning Objectives

As a result of participating in this activity, learners will be able to: 

  1. Determine accurate diagnosis and initiate treatment for opioid use disorder
  2. Interpret urine toxicology screens as it relates to managing opioid use disorder
  3. Demonstrate skills needed to work with patients who continue to use drugs and alcohol while in treatment for opioid use disorder
  4. Determine appropriate treatment plan for OUD, including the initiation and maintenance of buprenorphine therapy
