The MCNP has partnered with Boston Medical Center’s Office Based Addiction Treatment (OBAT) Training and Technical Assistance Program to offer an 8- hour Buprenorphine Waiver Training as part of our Pre-Conference Workshops at the 2020 New England Regional NP Conference.
The complete eight-hour course prepares NPs, CNM, CNS, and CRNAs to prescribe buprenorphine to treat opioid use disorder. The curriculum includes the science of addiction as a brain disorder, the pharmacology of buprenorphine, and the regulatory requirements around prescribing this medication.
Attendees will learn to screen patients for treatment with buprenorphine and to manage the medication along with the patient's other medical needs in an office setting such as a primary care clinic.
The course fulfills 8 hours of the required 24 hours of training needed for Nurse Practitioners to be eligible for a waiver. CME credit will be available and Breakfast and Lunch will be provided.
Registration is through the Boston Medical Center OBAT Program.
Registration deadline is April 24th, 2020.
