January 24 Webinar Covers How to Establish a Buprenorphine Practice
Posted on: 1/17/2018


CME offered

Medication assisted treatment (MAT) has emerged as the best available option for treating opioid use disorder; however, some patients may have trouble accessing this care.

Fortunately, buprenorphine – one of the drugs that can be used for MAT – can be administered to patients in a medical office setting, as opposed to a clinic certified by the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). But in order to prescribe buprenorphine in an office setting, a physician must first complete eight hours of required training to obtain a waiver of certain controlled substance regulations. 

Learn more by joining ISMS' FREE webinar, Establishing a Buprenorphine Practice: What You Need to Know, taking place January 24 at noon.

The webinar will cover how to:

  • Obtain a waiver.  
  • Screen and/or refer patients for buprenorphine treatment. 
  • Set up and manage relationships with other health professionals in their communities. 
  • Prepare a buprenorphine treatment team.
