The OUD Cascade of Care: Tailoring Pathways for Buprenorphine Treatment (On-Demand)

Presenter(s): Arthur Robin Williams, MD MBE FAPA

Webinar Description:
 The OUD Cascade of Care is a public health framework for monitoring population-level outcomes with an emphasis on MOUD initiation and retention. Buprenorphine treatment can be tailored under the Cascade framework based on patient risk level. For instance, patients with active fentanyl use who are naïve to buprenorphine often need more intensive services early in treatment compared to patients entering care already on buprenorphine, whether prescribed or otherwise.

Educational Objectives:

  • Identify strategies to increase patient engagement and retention in MOUD treatment.
  • Differentiate risk levels for patients entering care for buprenorphine treatment at treatment intake.
  • Describe changes to the system of care for OUD that would reduce overdose death.
