This 8-hour training will cover treatment of opioid use disorder, medication assisted treatment, and buprenorphine. It will fulfill 8 hours of required training for clinicians (physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants) to be able to prescribe buprenorphine to treat opioid use disorder. This training allows physicians to request a waiver from the Drug Enforcement Agency under the DATA 2000 law, so they can prescribe Schedule III drugs to treat opioid addiction.
Integrated Care Training - What is it and what does it look like in Iowa?
“Training in Integrated and Collaborative Care”
Faculty, Alex Thompson, MD, IPS Member
Psychiatrists are in a unique position to help shape mental health care delivery in the rapidly evolving healthcare reform landscape using integrated care approaches in which mental health is delivered in primary care settings. This course includes a combination of didactics and interactive exercises to provide a psychiatrist with skills necessary to leverage their expertise in the Collaborative Care model. IPS Member, Jen Donovan, will share recent experiences launching an integrated care setting.
