8-Hour Free Live Course for Buprenorphine Waiver Training @MMC - January 27th

8 Hour Live Course for Buprenorphine Waiver Training

Monday, January 27th, 7:30 AM-5:00 PM

MMC Dana 9

The IMAT Team is offering training for those interested in seeking their waiver to prescribe buprenorphine in the treatment of opioid use disorder. To obtain the waiver to prescribe, physicians are required to take 8 hours of training.  NPs and PAs can also take this course and receive credit for 8 hours.  This will then apply to their 24 hour training requirement.

The free course is open to attending physicians, residents, fellows and APPs.  The training does not expire, so residents can wait to submit an application for a buprenorphine waiver once they have an active DEA license.

To register, please contact:  Cheryl Harris @ charris@mainehealth.org.  Any questions regarding course content or waiver application, please contact Kristen Silvia MD @ silvik@mmc.org.

CME

Maine Medical Center designates this educational activity for a maximum of 8.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Participants should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.  These hours apply to the State of Maine biannual opioid education requirements.

Funding for this initiative was made possible (in part) by grant no. 1H79TI081968 from SAMHSA. The views expressed in written conference materials or publications and by speakers and moderators do not necessarily reflect the official policies of the Department of Health and Human Services; nor does mention of trade names, commercial practices, or organizations imply endorsement by the U.S. Government.
