The Bureau of Justice Assistance leadership, in collaboration with the Comprehensive Opioid Abuse Program (COAP) team, invites you to this no-cost webinar on opioid use disorders (OUD) treatment services on May 29, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. ET.
This “COAP Webinar Series: Next Steps and Considerations for Providing OUD Treatment Services Utilizing Videoconferencing” will focus on steps for implementation, including how to start the conversation with management and clinical staff, what technology/technical skills are required (and how to use the videoconferencing platform), and how to ensure patient privacy and security. Finally, presenters will review a hands-on checklist developed by Operation PAR that includes helpful strategies for clinicians to start, manage, and end treatment sessions using videoconferencing.
This is the second in a series exploring the use of videoconferencing to enhance and expand patient access to and engagement in OUD treatment services. The first installment, “COAP Webinar Series: Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) Outpatient Clinics: Using Behavioral Telehealth,” explored lessons learned from six MAT clinics in Florida, where Operation PAR instituted the use of videoconferencing.
