What is the ISM Team Training?

Implementation Support for MOUD (ISM) will help your practice increase access to MOUD for your patients and build the confidence of providers to successfully support patients eligible for MOUD in primary care.

Who is Eligible?

Practices who have prescribed Medication for Opioid Use Disorder (MOUD) to 4 or fewer patients in the last three months.

What Will My Team Receive?

Practices will receive support from a practice facilitator for 12 months. Practice support may flex over time in intensity, depending on the needs of the practice. For example, there may be multiple visits a month for the first three months as implementation begins, and then that backs off to once a month for maintenance. Practices will have check in’s with David Mendez, MD, an addiction trained subject matter expert, to receive help and support. The ISM project team will also provide support as needed.  

Practices will receive up to $12,000 by completing milestones that expand MOUD services at their site. Practices will also receive implementation support from our addiction medicine physician expert and trained practice facilitators.

What are the requirements?

Practices will be given milestones to meet throughout the project and will be assessed on these milestones at baseline and periodically through the project. Data will also be collected through the practice facilitator that is working with the practice and through surveys completed by the practice.

When will the training begin?

Project implementation will begin March 2023.
