Event description

Description

The NYSDOH AIDS Institute is sponsoring a free buprenorphine waiver training for clinical providers in partnership with New York City Department of Health & Mental Hygiene (NYCDOHMH). In response to opioid overdose deaths in New York State, increased access to buprenorphine treatment for opioid use disorder is urgently needed. Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants and Medical Residents are welcome and highly encouraged to attend.

Under current regulations, authorized practitioners (MDs, DOs, NPs & PAs) are required to obtain a ‘waiver’ to prescribe buprenorphine. To acquire this waiver, physicians are required to complete a standardized buprenorphine waiver 8-hour training. Nurse Practitioners (NPs) and Physician Assistants (PAs) are required to complete the standardized buprenorphine waiver 8-hour training as well as an additional 16 hours of online training as established by the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA). Residents may also take the course and apply for their waiver once they receive their DEA license. The buprenorphine waiver 8-hour training is offered in a half-and-half format [4.5 hours of in-person training followed up by 3.5 hours of online training]. Upon completion of the required training, providers will meet the requirement of the DATA 2000 to apply for a waiver to prescribe buprenorphine for opioid-dependent patients. Please contact us for further information.
