Testimonies from the Trenches Series - Low-Barrier Buprenorphine Treatment


This is a 15 minute didactic presentation followed by a collaborative discussion. This lecture will orient the audience to the tenants of low-barrier opioid use disorder treatment with buprenorphine. It will prepare learners to integrate this care into their practices.

Learning objectives:

  1. Introduce low-barrier buprenorphine treatment approaches
  2. Identify common barriers to receipt of OUD care with buprenporphine and review strategies to make care more accessible, including alternative induction approaches
  3. Increase comfort with providing OUD treatment to patients who have previously struggled to access care in traditional SUD treatment settings
