Who is it for?
The course is aimed at Physicians, Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (NP/CNM/CNS/CRNA), Physician Assistants and prescribers in Harris County (or those who plan to move to Harris County in the next three months).
This 8 hour course (Half and Half MAT waiver training) will teach you all the required skills needed to apply for a waiver to prescribe buprenorphine for the treatment of opioid use disorders.
Our goal is to get medical providers the information they need about opioid disorder, discuss how it can be treated, and how to implement this into your practice, plus help with troubleshooting logistical barriers for your patients.
We make sure every instruction is easily understood, and that all physicians reach the same level of expertise needed to support their patients in overcoming opioid use disorder.
This activity is in partnership with Baylor College of Medicine, Harris County Public Health, Houston Health Department, Providers Clinical Support Systems, and Doctors for Change.
