This one-hour training prepares nurses and other medical professionals to use long-acting injectable buprenorphine (Sublocade) in addiction treatment.
This is a one-hour training that prepares nurses offering medication for opioid-use disorder to manage addiction treatment with long-acting injectable buprenorphine. Topics covered will include: the pharmacology of long-acting injectable buprenorphine; patient selection; medication storage and administration; clinical logistics; side effects; supplemental dosing; lessons learned from the field; and billing and specialty pharmacies. We will also have an open discussion to learn from each other’s experiences with using this treatment.
This training will be held via Zoom. We would prefer that you log in using a computer with a webcam so that we can all connect to each other via video. Please note that signing on with video is required to receive CEs. If you do not have access to a webcam, please let us know.
Attendance is required for all OBAT nurses and MAs who work in a DPH/BSAS funded STATE OBOT program. All others working with patients on injectable buprenorphine are welcome and encouraged to attend.
By the end of the training, participants will be able to:
