This is a Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) Waiver Virtual Training course for New Jersey health care professionals with prescribing authority, focused on physicians, physician assistants, certified nurse midwives, and advanced practice nurses that includes 5.5 hours of virtual training at the conference, followed by 4-hours of online training for physicians (or 8-hours of online training for all other specialists) that attendees will complete within 90 days after the conference.

 The course fulfills the 8-hours of training required to apply for a waiver to prescribe buprenorphine for treatment of an opioid use disorder. The workshop will include both virtual didactic lectures and virtual breakout groups including discussion of clinical cases. The session will cover core content, mandated by the federal training requirement, as well as information about treating patients with substance use disorders in New Jersey; connecting patients to specialty care and social services; and how to receive mentoring and support.
