Webinar planned on telemedicine and primary care pharmacotherapy for opioid use disorder
In rural communities where pharmacotherapy may not be available in primary care practices (PCPs), telemedicine-based treatment with urban providers can serve as a crucial 2-3 year bridge, allowing PCPs to become trained in pharmacotherapy and integrate care management into their practices. A bridge program also supports patients in sustaining their recovery and supports substance use disorder treatment programs in maintaining access to treatment for new patients.
Hosted by the URMC Recovery Center of Excellence, the Bridging the Gap: Telemedicine as a Path to Primary care Pharmacotheraphy for Opioid Use Disorder webinar will be held September 25 at 11 AM. Click here to register.
