WEBINAR

March 31, 2020 12 PM CDT - 1 PM CDT

Recovery Oriented Systems of Care 101 for Prescribers

Presented by

Tom Hill, MSW, Sr. Advisor, Practice Improvement, National Council for Behavioral Health;
Aaron Williams, MA, Sr. Director of Training and Technical Assistance, National Council for Behavioral Health

Sponsoring organization: National Council for Behavioral Health

While use of medications and behavioral therapy are hallmarks of addiction treatment, more services are needed to facilitate lasting recovery. Recovery-oriented systems of care (ROSC) are a shift away from crisis-oriented, deficit-focused, and professionally-directed models of care to a vision of care that is designed in collaboration with people in recovery, emphasizes the hope and reality of long-term recovery, and recognizes the many pathways to healing for people with mental and substance use disorders. This webinar will explore the ROSC model and discuss how prescribers, peers and other allied professionals can work together to implement ROSC models to facilitate long-term recovery and wellness.

Educational objectives: 
  • Recognize recovery in the context of health and wellness
  • Describe the components of a Recovery Oriented System of Care (ROSC)
  • Explore the role of peer support workers in a ROSC model
  • Discuss the relationship between providing medications for substance use disorders and recovery support services
  • Explore the staffing and services necessary to support a ROSC model


Note: Continuing education credits are not available for this event.

April 2, 2020 12 PM CDT - 1 PM CDT

Telemedicine-Delivered Buprenorphine Treatment in the Age of Covid-19

Presented by

Allison Lin, MD, MS, University of Michigan, VA at Ann Arbor; David Moore, MD, PhD, Yale University

Sponsoring organization: American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry

There are not enough treatment providers to meet the needs of the COVID-19 pandemic . In addition, given that OUD medication treatment often requires regular visits, long-term treatment must also be accessible to patients during this time. Telemedicine can increase access to patients who require substance use disorder treatment. However, there are numerous regulatory, logistical and other clinical questions around implementing telemedicine delivery of medication treatment for OUD (tele-MOUD). In this presentation, we will: present results of a recent systematic review on evidence around tele-MOUD and discuss lessons learned from implementing tele-MOUD in rural clinics in the VA and other regions.

The audience will be introduced to tele-MOUD through an interactive facilitated discussion in which audience members will discuss their perceptions, questions and experiences in implementing tele-MOUD. This will be focused on practical clinical concerns around requirements and what works and doesn’t work. We will discuss patient cases related to OUD and associated clinical issues (e.g. IDU, chronic pain, etc) will be presented in order to guide the audience interactively through consideration of treatment options, and how tele-MOUD can play a role depending on the local resources or legal environment. Finally, there will be a discussion of overcoming barriers and challenges to implementing telemedicine delivered treatment. We will address the latest state and federal level legal requirements including discussion of recent changes in regulation.

Educational objectives: 
  • Describe evidence-base around tele-MOUD and gaps in evidence.
  • Describe the potential ways that tele-MOUD can address current treatment needs while also discussing important clinical considerations in using tele-MOUD, including specific patients’ characteristics, clinic practices, and local resources to consider.
  • Review information on key regulatory/legal requirements and technology considerations important to use of tele-MOUD.
