Medication Assisted Treatment Waiver Course

Tuesday, October 1, 1- 5:30 p.m.

As Infectious Diseases and HIV physicians respond to the growing number of infections associated with injection drug use, they are uniquely positioned to initiate treatment for addiction while managing the patient’s infection. This four-hour workshop, paired with a four-hour online course completed after the live course will allow participants to obtain the waiver to prescribe buprenorphine to their patients with substance use disorders. Attendees will also gain the specific knowledge needed regarding the use of buprenorphine to manage opioid dependence in the outpatient setting. Finally, the course will also touch on the psychiatric and medical co-morbidities associated with opioid addiction. (AAP is the Data Sponsor for this training.)

How to Use EBM/GRADE to Develop Guidelines

Wednesday, October 2, 8 a.m. – Noon

The drive for the optimal guideline grading/rating of evidence framework has driven the emergence of the Grading of Recommendation Assessment, Development and Evaluation framework (GRADE). GRADE application in the production of clinical practice guidelines can result in trustworthy guideline recommendations, and as such it is imperative that persons who play a role in guideline panels have some training and orientation in the guideline development process itself, as well as an acute focus on the underpinnings of GRADE. This 4-hour workshop offers such training and orientation to attendees and particularly for those who plan to serve on guideline panels in the future.

Extending Antibiotic Stewardship into Outpatient Settings

Wednesday, October 2, 8 a.m. – Noon

Inappropriate antibiotic use in the outpatient sector is a considerable public health problem. Antibiotic stewardship teams are increasingly being asked to develop and implement stewardship programs for their medical center or health system’s outpatient clinics. Many techniques of outpatient stewardship are different from those of the inpatient realm including data gathering, interventions, behavioral modifications and education.  The primary objective of this didactic and active learning workshop is to give attendees effective tools that can be used to expand the world of stewardship into the outpatient arena.
