MASAP is pleased to announce our 2013 training series on Medication Assisted Treatment
A survey of our membership resulted in making Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) a priority training focus. Our membership AIM is to implement and further diffuse these treatments in order to improve overall patient access across the State of Maine.
Day 1: Overview - This course will address medication-assisted treatment for substance use disorders. Medications for the treatment of addiction will be reviewed, including how specific medications work in the brain. The course will place particular emphasis on how to support people with recovery. Principles of effective treatment and recovery support for this population will be addressed.
Day 2: Implementation - Participants will develop a business case for sustaining the diverse compliment of medication assisted treatment interventions and will develop a change plan with a dedicated team to facilitate inter-agency change. Changes may include policy, regulatory, purchasing, finance and relational strategies. Participants will dedicate a data monitor to report monthly on individual and aggregate outcomes.
Day 3: Sustainability and Spread - Participants will build upon their implementation modules and data controls to most effectively monitor both finance and quality outcomes to assure a sustainable service. Providers will receive on-going coaching/ training and support to maximize success rates. This includes training and access to national content experts; policy, coding and billing support; Regulatory and Accreditation Support. Providers will develop and implement sustainability plans with patient centered outcome thresholds.
