WISAM Beyond the Waiver Course
Thursday, June 23, 2022 | 7:00-9:00 AM (central)

Register today to participate in the Beyond the Waiver Course, created by WISAM, in order to provide Primary Care Providers who have their X-waiver an opportunity to learn more and ask questions. Once a provider has their waiver and has started treating opioid use disorder (OUD) with buprenorphine from the office based setting, there are some common clinical challenges that arise. Because of the removal of the formal 4 hour course for waiver, it is important to provide more in-depth discussion of these concerns and how to manage them from the office-based setting. This course aims to fill that knowledge gap.
