The University of Colorado Department of Family Medicine is collaborating with the Colorado Health Extension System (CHES), and the Implementing Technology and Medication Assisted Treatment and Team Training in Rural Colorado (IT MATTTRs Colorado) project to help address the opioid epidemic affecting our state. This is a response to calls from our healthcare communities for help in diagnosing opioid use disorders (OUD) and supporting patients in medication assisted treatment (MAT) programs. With funding provided by the Office of Behavioral Health, we have already trained over 800 providers to complete the MAT waiver training to become certified to prescribe medication for the treatment of OUD. In addition, we will provide support through tools, resources and team training to practice staff on implementing MAT programs.

Who is Eligible?

Providers and providers in training which include physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, clinical nurse specialists, certified nurse midwives, and certified registered nurse anesthetists are all eligible to complete the buprenorphine waiver training. Physicians require 8 hours of MAT training; NPs, CNSs, CNMs, CRNAs, and PAs require 24 hours of MAT training.
