The Family Practice Renewal Program invites you to attend the Suboxone Treatment of Addiction Advanced Training Program. This CME session will be held on Monday, April 19 and Wednesday, April 21 from 7 pm to 9:30 pm.

    • Explain the basic features of opioid dependency as outlined by the DSM 5;
    • Recognize the patient with an opioid use disorder (OUD) and decide if
      opioid replacement therapy (ORT) with Buprenorphine is appropriate and
      safe for that patient;
    • Initiate treatment with Buprenorphine adhering to prescribed induction protocols;
    • Watch for common and uncommon adverse events seen with buprenorphine/naloxone
      and potential drug interactions; and,
    • Evaluate the stability of a patient on ORT with Buprenorphine using the clinical interview
      and urine drug screen (UDS).

While this event is free, we do require pre-registration to ensure pre-session information and materials are available to you in a timely fashion. Please note this session is an on-line learning event using Zoom to ensure the continued health and safety of all participants.
