MAT as the Standard of Care

This event is aimed to assist clinicians in meeting their training requirements and provide support for healthcare providers who are new to prescribing Buprenorphine. One of CA Bridge’s core pillars is ensuring low-barrier access to evidence-based treatment with buprenorphine for opioid use disorder. As our work continues to expand to more hospitals throughout the state, we still encounter clinicians and nurses who remain unfamiliar or uncomfortable with the evidence behind medication for addiction treatment (MAT). These clinicians and nurses will benefit from a review of fundamental MAT basics.
