A Resource for Healthcare and Social Services Professionals
This one-hour training prepares nurses and other medical professionals to use monthly injectable buprenorphine in addiction treatment.
This is a one-hour training that prepares nurses offering medication for opioid-use disorder to manage addiction treatment with monthly injectable buprenorphine. Topics covered will include: the pharmacology of monthly 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 web cam 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 web cam, please let us know.
