Treatment of Opioid Use Disorder Half & Half Waiver Training
The Drug Abuse Treatment Act of 2000 (DATA 2000) specifies training necessary for prescribers to obtain a waiver to engage in office‐based treatment of opioid use disorders with buprenorphine. This course addresses those requirements using a curriculum approved by CSAT/SAMHSA and the Providers Clinical Support System (PCSS.) The Treatment of Opioid Use Disorder Course covers all evidence-based practices and medications for treating patients with opioid use disorder.
Practice Gaps and Needs
In order to apply for a DEA DATA 2000 waiver, physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants must complete four hours live and four hours of online education to prescribe buprenorphine for the treatment of opioid use disorders in an office-based setting. Providers lack the knowledge base required to screen and identify patients experiencing Opioid Use Disorder and define evidence-based treatments. Additionally, providers need additional training in order to utilize evidence-based resources to ensure providers have the confidence to prescribe buprenorphine for patients with OUD.
Elements of Competence
This continuing education (CE) activity is designed to change learner competence and focuses on the American Board of Medical Specialties areas of medical knowledge, professionalism, and patient care and procedural skills. This activity also focuses on the interprofessional competencies of values/ethics for interprofessional practice and roles and responsibilities.
This activity is designed to meet the needs of physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants in Family & Community Medicine.
By participating in this activity learners will be able to:
- illustrate the importance of obtaining a waiver to begin treating patients with OUD.
- describe the fundamentals of office-based opioid treatment including the treatment of the co-morbid patient.
- screen and identify patients with OUD and define evidence-based treatments.
