Join Comagine Health for the first session of a six-part weekly series to help Utah providers develop or augment a medication for opioid use disorder (MOUD) program with special considerations for COVID-19.
This series is designed for clinicians and administrators who are looking to build or grow a MOUD program that immediately impacts patients' lives. Building a MOUD program doesn’t require advertising or adding new patients – you already have patients in your practice you can treat today!
Participants will be provided with direction in setting up or growing a MOUD program, including guidance on:
- How to discuss MOUD with your staff
- How to accurately identify which patients will benefit and resources for those who need extra assistance
- Policy, procedure, visit templates and billing
- Risk mitigation strategies
All sessions will be held virtually on Wednesdays from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. MT and will run from Nov. 4 to Dec. 9, 2020. CE credits are available (1.0 per session hours in AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™)
