State-Level Contingency Management Programs: Training, Outcomes, & Provider Perspectives
Recorded: Thursday, April 13, 2023 to Sunday, April 16, 2023
This 75-minute on-demand session from the ASAM 54th Annual Conference addresses the training and implementation supports needed to successfully implement an effective and federally compliant contingency management program.
Contingency management (CM) is the most effective intervention for initiating stimulant drug abstinence. At the same time, CM is seldom used in practice due to implementation barriers and federal limitations on its use of incentives, a key aspect of the intervention. We describe statewide CM training implementation efforts in Montana and Washington State, including a review of lessons learned, and a provider panel, during which clinical staff will discuss their experiences with CM.
The target audience for this intermediate level session includes physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, other clinicians, researchers, residents, fellows, students, and counselors.
This session addresses the following ACGME Competencies: Patient Care and Procedural Skills, Medical Knowledge, Practice-based Learning and Improvement
This session addresses the following IOM Competencies:Provide patient-centered care, Work in interdisciplinary teams, Employ evidence-based practice, Apply quality improvement
Upon completion, learners will be able to:
- Describe the training and implementation supports needed to successfully implement an effective and federally compliant contingency management program.
- List the facilitators and barriers faced when implementing state-level contingency management interventions for stimulant use disorders.
- List strategies providers have developed to overcome contingency management implementation challenges and describe how these are relevant to the attendee's practice setting.
