Practical Solutions to Prescribing Medication Assisted Treatment

Providence, RI US
September 26, 2019

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is the use of FDA-approved medications, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, to provide a “whole-patient” approach to the treatment of substance use disorders. Buprenorphine, methadone and naltrexone are considered evidence-based treatment approaches. According to a study published in the Annals of Family Medicine, more than half of the physicians who obtain a DATA waiver to prescribe MAT do not actually prescribe due a variety of barriers. Implementing any new treatment or skill into practice can be daunting. This educational activity will provide practical tips and strategies that will help prescribers overcome common barriers allowing them to add this treatment modality to their clinical armamentarium. The goal of this activity is that you  leave with increased confidence in your skills and ability to empower your staff. 

Target Audience

Primary Care Physicians, Specialists, Physician Assistants, Advanced Practice Registered Nurses, Residents & Fellows.

Learning Objectives

  • Attendees will have access to subject matter experts for appropriate consultation regarding medication assisted treatment for opioid use disorder
  • Attendees with an approved DATA waiver will have increased competence  in prescribing medication assisted treatment to appropriately selected patients with opioid use disorder
  • Attendees without an approved DATA waiver will realize the benefits of pursuing the required course work to obtain a DATA waiver.
