PCSS Exchange is a six-session online course focused on the implementation of prescribing medications for treating opioid use disorder (MOUD) in a variety of healthcare settings. The course content is built around the EPIS (Explore, Prepare, Implement, Sustain) Framework of implementation.
PCSS-X is intended for an interprofessional audience. The first three sessions are focused on broader issues of establishing an MOUD program. The final three sessions will focus on clinical considerations when prescribing MOUD and will increase waivered and waiver-eligible providers’ knowledge and confidence related to prescribing MOUD to a variety of patients. Prescribers with frontline experience prescribing MAT and developing clinic workflows will be available during all six sessions to answer participants’ questions and discuss real-world cases.
Sessions 1-3: Physicians, nurse practitioners or other advanced practice nurses, PAs, psychologists, social workers, clinical administrators and healthcare teams.
Sessions 4-6: Physicians, nurse practitioners or other advanced practice nurses, PAs, and healthcare teams.
