Opioid Webinar Series Part 7: Medication Assisted Treatment: Are You Ready? Operational Considerations and Readiness Assessment for Providers in Outpatient Settings
This is the seventh webinar in a series about addressing the opioid crisis in America.
June 12, 2019, 1 to 2 p.m. EDT – Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) has been proven to successfully treat opioid use disorder and can be offered in outpatient settings alongside treatment for other chronic medical and behavioral health conditions. However, many providers are unfamiliar with the nuances of providing this treatment in their practices. What’s needed is a systematic understanding of the various operational and regulatory issues that providers will face when providing MAT.
During this webinar, HMA clinicians will address some of the key considerations for practices looking to offer MAT. They will also demonstrate how the use of a readiness assessment tool can help providers identify and work through a variety of potential problem areas, leading to implementation of a successful MAT program.
