About this event:
With the Opioid epidemic continuing to escalate within our nation, there is increasing awareness of the need to treat substance use disorder (SUD) as a unique condition. In response to this, primary care practices are more actively stepping into SUD treatment and integrated behavioral health clinicians (BHCs) are a big part of this service delivery.
From programmatic experience gained in supporting BHCs and medical providers in delivering services for patients receiving medication assisted treatment, Mary Jean Mork will share lessons learned and offer practical tips on promoting skills, competence and confidence, while acknowledging the personal and skill-based evolution most BHCs experience with MAT work. She will also offer some basic information about team-based approaches in primary care, including billing guidelines that may be useful in your setting.
Participants will be able to:
- Describe the BHC skills and service model needed to deliver MAT services in a primary care setting, along with programmatic supports for skill development
- Formulate a plan to support skill development and change required to prepare BHCs for SUD practice in primary care
- Define a group service structure useful to MAT in primary care,including billing and coding guidelines
