About the Medication First Treatment of Opioid Use Disorder: Models Across Care Settings Conference
Leading experts on Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) research and treatment will present their work with low-barrier medical models of care across four settings: hospitals, corrections, primary care, and street outreach. National experts will highlight leading models for OUD treatment outside of specialty addiction treatment settings, while local leaders will underscore the corresponding regional and statewide efforts currently underway in Missouri. This one-day conference will include presentations on state-of-the-art treatment models around the U.S., interactive dialogue about clinical and implementation hurdles, and discussion of actionable steps to move OUD treatment forward within a Medication First, evidence-based framework.
• Define the core principles of Missouri’s Medication First model of OUD treatment
• Describe the implementation model and effectiveness of various low-barrier medical OUD treatment approaches in hospital, corrections, primary care, and street outreach settings
• Identify the existing efforts, barriers, and successes of current OUD treatment initiatives within the identified settings in Missouri
