X-Express: The ABCs of Prescribing Buprenorphine

Pain Management Learning Series

This highly practical one-hour course, presented by Ann Garment, MD, FACP provides an overview of the role buprenorphine plays in the management of opioid use disorder. Since the previously required 8-hour training for buprenorphine prescribing has been eliminated, the goal of this course is to increase prescribing confidence among attendees. Specifically, the course's emphasis is on how to recognize opioid use disorder; which patients are appropriate for buprenorphine; how to initiate buprenorphine and how to adjust buprenorphine; how to manage buprenorphine in patients with acute or chronic pain; reviewing real-world prescribing tips; and addressing barriers to care for buprenorphine patients and providers.
