Buprenorphine Eligibility Waiver Training for Clinical Providers

12/2 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm

free

The NYSDOH AIDS Institute and Sullivan County Public Health Services are hosting a Free Buprenorphine Eligibility Waiver Training for Clinical Providers (Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, Pharmacists, and Medical Residents) on Saturday, December 2nd, 2017 from 8:00AM to 1:00PM at Catskills Regional Medical Center, 68 Harris-Bushville Rd, Board Room, Harris, NY 12742.

As you may know, Sullivan County has some of the highest rates of opioid overdose in New York State. In just the first seven months of 2017, Sullivan County has experienced a reported 20 overdose deaths. From 2013-2016, there were approximately 75 reported opioid overdose deaths. We know these numbers are higher, and continue to increase due to access to fentanyl. We are seeking to increase the volume of providers in and around your county that are able to offer medication assisted treatment (MAT) to people using opioids whom could benefit from buprenorphine (or “suboxone”).

Attached is a flyer with further information, including location, online registration, and more details. Further information will be sent out to confirmed attendees. Light refreshments will be provided. Registration closes on November 29th at 5pm.

Trainers:
Sharon Stancliff, MD, Harm Reduction Coalition, New York, NY
Bruce Trigg, MD, Harm Reduction Coalition, New York, NY

Please Note: CME Credits will be made available. This is the first half of the minimum required 8 hours of training, and the second half must be completed online after attendance to the live training. Currently NPs & PAs are required to take an additional 16 hours of online training which is available on the PCSS-MAT website (Part 2).
