The OBAT Training and Technical Assistance team at Boston Medical Center will be holding three separate Primary Care Buprenorphine Waiver trainings at Boston Medical Center.

The complete eight-hour course prepares physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants 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 training needed to obtain a waiver to prescribe buprenorphine. The Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 (DATA 2000) requires physicians to complete 8 hours of approved training in order to be eligible for a waiver, and nurse practitioners and physician assistants to complete 24 hours.
