This webinar is an abbreviated course in “Buprenorphine 101.” It is well known that the role of healthcare and counseling professionals in the treatment of patients is profound. The goal of this interactive session is to enhance your professional knowledge surrounding outpatient based opioid treatment with Buprenorphine. Some of the topics covered include preparing patients for MAT with Buprenorphine, engaging patients in treatment, and connecting patients to resources. As a result of this session, attendees will increase their understanding of patient treatment challenges, understand their role in evolving the patient experience using strength-based approaches, and identify the benefits of combining counseling and Buprenorphine for long-term treatment success.

She provides strategic direction and training to healthcare organizations on opioid use disorders.
