Improving MAT Access and Quality Through Collaborative Care: ...

Online Video

Medication assisted treatments (MAT) enhance opioid use disorder treatment efficacy, yet remain underutilized. Opioid treatment programs (OTPs) can now dispense buprenorphine or naltrexone as well as methadone. Collaboration between OTPs and office-based buprenorphine (OBB) prescribers constitutes a cohesive model providing access to comprehensive services, and encouraging MAT prescribing. During this webinar Dr. Stoller will focus on a model of care he coined “Collaborative Opioid Prescribing (CoOP),” linking OTP expertise with OBB prescribers. The OTP provides assessment, buprenorphine induction, and counseling, while OBB physicians provide ongoing buprenorphine prescribing and somatic or psychiatric care. An adaptive stepped care model adjusts counseling intensity and medication parameters (OBB prescription vs. OTP dispensing; duration of prescriptions). Supporting OBB providers in this manner may encourage MAT provision and access, while concurrently improving treatment outcome. Providing a broad spectrum of medical, social, and recovery services through coordinated care can enhance health outcomes and address unmet patient needs.

Leveraging Technology to Engage Students in Recovery (CC)

Online Video

The digital landscape has changed dramatically in the past 20 years. From the advent of email to the proliferation of social media and anonymous rant sites, identifying which platforms will be advantageous for increasing student engagement can be overwhelming. For example, the much-maligned app Yik-Yak has been criticized as a source of anonymous hate, but has the potential to reach vulnerable students, raise awareness about campus resources, and be a channel for anonymous positivity. The University of Texas at Austin has had success with an internal email listserv, a private Facebook group, a public-facing Facebook page, and text messaging, but has not successfully engaged students via GroupMe or Twitter. The University of North Texas, in contrast, has had great success with student engagement via GroupMe, Twitter, and CyberDust as well as more traditional digital platforms. There are also dozens of recovery-oriented mobile apps currently available or in development. As the social media, mobile app and school-specific digital landscape continues to evolve, collegiate recovery professionals must adapt to meet students in recovery wherever they gather and engage online.
