This program is part of a national training initiative, which has been endorsed by the Federal Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) and is sponsored by the AOAAM. Physicians who successfully complete this 8 hour-course will be eligible to request a waiver to practice medical-assisted addiction therapy with Buprenorphine, for the treatment of opioid dependence. NPs and PAs are eligible to apply for the waiver after they successfully complete a total of 24-hours of training, of which these 8-hours can be applied. In addition to this 8-hour training, NPs and PAs will be required to complete an additional 16-hours of training . PCSS-MAT is a collaborative project with the American Osteopathic Academy of Addiction Medicine (AOAAM), American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry (AAAP), American Psychiatric Association (APA), American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) and Association for Medical Education and Research in Substance Abuse (AMERSA). PCSS-MAT’s mission is to provide free, evidence-based resources to train clinicians and the public about the effectiveness of medications used for treating opioid addiction, including buprenorphine, naltrexone and methadone, in order to more effectively address this public health crisis.

 

The first half of the training is a 4.25-hour live webcast. The second half of the course is a 3.75-hour computer-based study. An examination on the computer study must be successfully completed within 30 days of the webinar session as part of the process to obtain a waiver for prescribing buprenorphine.
Instructions on how to log on to the second half of the course will be provided via email, ONLY to those who complete the 4.25-hour live webcast in its entirety. Please note that in order to be eligible for the waiver to prescribe Buprenorphine, you must complete a total of 8 hours consisting of the live webcast session (4.25-hours) and the online self-study session and exam (3.75-hours) within 30 days of the live webcast session. The AOAAM cannot verify completion of the webinar session if less than 4.25 hours are attended. Should you not attend for the entire session, you will have to retake the entire webinar again on a different date in order to get credit. Please be aware that it is MANDATORY that you are able to view and hear the presentation and participate in the interactive polling questions in order for the AOAAM to verify your attendance. Phone attendance only does NOT qualify for webinar participation. The combined live webcast and online self-study training will provide the required 8 hours needed to obtain the waiver to prescribe buprenorphine in office-based treatment of opioid dependence. Physicians who complete this course will meet the training qualification under the new law.
