TPCA Training, HHS White Paper Address Opioid Abuse, Treatment
Thursday, February 23, 2017

Section: TPCA & Beyond, February 2017

As more attention is focused on the opioid abuse epidemic, the Health and Human Services (HHS) Office on Women's Health (OWH) has issued the final version of the OWH white paper on Women and Opioids. It explores what is currently known about the opioid epidemic and describes promising practices for addressing opioid use disorder prevention and treatment for women, as well as identifies areas that are less well understood and may warrant further study.

On Wednesday, March 8, TPCA will present the eight-hour buprenorphine waiver training course required for physicians interested in seeking their waiver to prescribe buprenorphine in the treatment of opioid use disorders. This event is sponsored by the American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry. For more information on the training, who should attend, and how to apply, click here.
