You Can Do It: Buprenorphine Prescribing in Primary Care

Tuesday, July 9, 2019
7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Massachusetts Medical Society, Waltham

Register for the meeting

Program Description: Given the scale of the opioid epidemic and the need to provide treatment for those suffering from opioid use disorder, the primary care setting is increasingly important as a venue for buprenorphine therapy. Many physicians in the ambulatory setting, even if already licensed to prescribe buprenorphine, may wish to provide this care but are unsure how to get started and what resources may be available to help support them when they encounter questions and challenges. This program aims to allow physicians in the primary care setting who have successfully made OUD care part of their daily practice to share their experiences, resources they have used along the way, and empower attendees to start prescribing life-saving buprenorphine therapy more regularly in their practices.
