This course aims to present a framework for providing maintenance treatment for opioid use disorder with buprenorphine/naloxone, including its use in a primary care setting. The course walks the learner through the key elements of selecting, preparing, initiating and maintaining a patient with opioid use disorder on buprenorphine/naloxone treatment. A blend of narrative text, video role-plays, short answer and multiple choice questions frame the course. Excerpts and recommendations are embedded from the CAMH publication, Buprenorphine/Naloxone for Opioid Dependence: Clinical Practice Guideline.
This is a self-paced, online course. The course is comprised of six modules, and learners have six weeks to complete the course.
