Learning Objectives:

  • Review addiction treatment in office-based practices
  • Discuss the pharmacological treatments of opioid use disorder
  • Determine what medical record documentation must be followed
  • Discuss the process of buprenorphine induction as well as stabilization and maintenance techniques
  • Describe how to take a patient history and evaluation
  • Review safety concerns and drug interactions

How it Works:

The buprenorphine waiver 8-hour training is offered in a ‘half- and-half’ format – 4 hours of in-person or virtual training followed up by 4 hours of online training through PCSS.

Physicians are required to complete the standardized buprenorphine waiver 8-hour training. Nurse Practitioners, and Physician Assistants are required to complete the standardized buprenorphine waiver 8-hour training as well as an additional 16 hours of online training as established by the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA) which can be found here: https://pcssnow.org/medications-for-opioid-use-disorder/

Upon completion of the required training, providers will meet the requirement of the DATA 2000 to apply for a waiver to prescribe buprenorphine for patients with OUD.
