Practical Solutions to Medication Assisted Treatment
Time & Location
About The Event
Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is the use of FDAapproved 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.
Who Should Attend Primary Care Physicians, Specialists, Physician Assistants, Advanced Practice Registered Nurses, Residents & Fellows.
