A Resource for Healthcare and Social Services Professionals
January 27, 2022
6:00 pm–8:00 pm ET
This training is part 2 of 8 for the training series that will provide APPs the additional 16 hours to meet the requirements to obtain a Medication for Opioid Use Disorder (MOUD) X-Waiver Certificate that will allow them to prescribe to more than 30 patients.
In accordance with 2021 changes in practice guidelines for administering buprenorphine for the treatment of opioid use disorder, Advanced Practice Providers (APPs) are required to apply to the Drug Enforcement Agency for a waiver to prescribe buprenorphine. In order to treat more than 30 patients, APPs must complete 24 hours of specialized training —an eight-hour Medication for Opioid Use Disorder (MOUD) X-Waiver training course plus an additional 16 hours of training. Until now, the additional 16 hours has primarily been available through online, pre-recorded modules.
Boston Medical Center’s OBAT TTA is proud to announce a no-cost, live training series that will provide APPs the additional 16 hours to meet these requirements. This training was developed by and for APPs.
The 2nd session in this series is titled "Stigma and Motivational Interviewing."
