Who Should Attend?
This interactive 4.5-hour course is designed for physicians, nurse practitioners, PA’s, pharmacists, nurses, social workers, psychologists and healthcare professionals who are involved in a MAT practice and want to expand their expertise and comfort level in caring for patients with an Opioid Use Disorder (OUD). This course will be approached as an engaging case-based workshop with breakout groups and opportunities for peer-to-peer discussions. This Advanced Course will be held simultaneously to AAAP’s Addictions and Their Treatment (AATT) course prior to AAAP’s Annual Meeting. Please note that there is a slight overlap with AATT on Wednesday.

- Review approaches to providing MAT in your practice, such as collaborative care, shared appointments, and hub-and-spoke models practice.
- Review the basic logistics of implementing a new program.
- Review a basic approach to thinking about appropriate clinic policies, including concurrent psychosocial treatment, addressing risks of diversion, tapering medications, and transitioning to other medications.
- Review considerations for including both agonist and antagonist options for the treatment of opioid use disorders. Review SC & implants.
- Review the approaches to managing patients with chronic or acute pain during office-based opioid treatment.
- Learn about the resources that are currently available to support prescribers, including PCSS, project ECHO, and the prescriber Toolkit.
