Primary care and behavioral health practices play a key role in increasing access to medication assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid dependence and use disorder (OUD). The IT MATTTRs TM Practice Team Training helps create a cohesive, supportive clinical environment where the entire team plays a role. Make sure your team is ready!
Over five 45-minute modules, the training covers:
This training was valuable for the whole team to hear the benefits of MAT and to understand that it is not simply substituting another drug/substance.
The most valuable part was learning exactly what can help these people that need treatment the most. Also, learning how it effects someone who can really be struggling with an opioid or heroin addiction.
The training made me realize that I want to take the training for the DEA waiver and help patients with addiction at this practice.
The IT MATTTRs Practice Team Training was developed by MAT experts, community members, practice facilitators, and primary care researchers. Trainees report an improved understanding of OUD and treatment and higher self-rated ability to provide MAT after training. Training has been associated with significant increases in the number of patients receiving treatment with buprenorphine. More about our Research and Evidence coming soon!
