University of Washington Continuing Education is partnering with the American Society of Addiction Medicine for a webinar on 6/6 on the Treatment of Opioid Use Disorder.

This 8-hour virtual live course covers treating opioid use disorder by using interactive, case-based learning to teach evidence-based practices and also provides the required education needed to prescribe buprenorphine.

Please Note: That recent legislation has removed the waiver requirement to prescribe buprenorphine. Some of the course content and descriptions refer to the waiver and we appreciate your patience as we work to update this content. To learn more about federal buprenorphine prescribing regulations, check out Policies Governing Buprenorphine for Opioid Use Disorder.
