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 and have every attendee's "X-waiver" application in progress by the end of the session. 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.
