Recognizing that clinician waiver training to prescribe buprenorphine for opioid use disorder (OUD) is a necessary but insufficient strategy to increase access to effective treatment in local primary care practices, the IT MATTTRsTM Practice Team Training:
The IT MATTTRsTM Practice Team Training will help you build a clinical team that has knowledge, skills, and resources to treat OUD. Over four 45-minute modules, the training covers information critical for your team’s understanding of OUD as a chronic condition, preparing your practice and patients for MAT, and the specific MAT stages and steps.
The IT MATTTRsTM Practice Team Training was developed by MAT experts, community members, and academic researchers for your entire team. Your front desk staff, medical assistants, nurses, medical records, care coordinators, clinic managers, clinicians, behavioral health providers all play a role in providing MAT.
It 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 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.
You have several options for training your practice team. Review essential information in the four-module IT MATTTRsTM Practice Team Training with your team by reviewing the training slides linked to each module.
