Steve U., M.D. -

Implementing Medication-assisted Treatment for OUD seems much more complex than writing a prescription for buprenorphine or Narcan. I reviewed the Annals of Internal Medicine review on the Subject:
https://annals.org/aim/fullarticle/2589794/primary-care-based-models-treatment-opioid-use-disorder-scoping-review and a paper by the AHRQ on implementing this in a rural primary care setting https://integrationacademy.ahrq.gov/sites/default/files/mat_for_oud_environmental_scan_volume_1_1.pdf
and I looked at the PCSS web site and it all seemed somewhat overwhelming. Perhaps in a future episode, the reviewers could discuss in more detail how this might be integrated into clinical practice If the reviewers have some real-life examples that would be helpful. Thanks
