Webinar Description: The strengths and barriers for each community and clinic vary, and there is no one-size-fits-all model for implementing Medications for Opioid Use Disorder (MOUD). Questions you have might have include: What models have been used to successfully scale up MOUD for patients? What models have specifically been used to scale up buprenorphine treatment? How do we know which approach might work best in a particular setting? This session will review these questions and highlight concrete organizational and administrative steps and processes to consider when defining your own clinic’s needs in treatment delivery. We will discuss the value of screening and how it fits into current patient flow. We will discuss the importance of developing a MOUD implementation plan that includes clinical considerations, process improvement considerations, staffing, and financial considerations.

Educational Objectives:

  • Evaluate two common models of MOUD service delivery – “Nurse Care Manager” and “Hub and Spoke” – and consider appropriateness of fit
  • Identify potential OUD patients using evidence-based screening tools and consider how screening can be integrated into current patient flow
  • Develop an MOUD implementation plan that includes clinical, documentation/metrics, and financial considerations
