Milestone 1.2: Practice identifies champions (ie. RN, Provider, MA, etc.) responsible for practice change related to MOUD. Practice has dedicated resources (protected time, EHR, functionality, etc.) to meet and engage in practice change.
- Identify MOUD practice champions; individuals that will lead process change to support MOUD.
- Develop quality improvement (QI) capability within the practice and empower staff/providers to participate in MOUD related QI activities, including:
- Identify multidisciplinary MOUD quality improvement team.
- Protect time for MOUD team meetings by blocking patient care responsibilities where necessary.
Consider what time and resources may be required for MOUD team work outside of regular meetings.
