Using Mobile Services to Increase Access to Medications for Addiction Treatment
Recorded: Thursday, April 22, 2021 - Saturday, April 24, 2021
This 1-hour on-demand session from ASAM Virtual 2021 addresses the mobile service approaches for providing medications for addiction treatment and how this approach can help increase access to MAT for underserved individuals.
This session will review mobile service approaches for providing medications for addiction treatment (MAT). Mobile services can help increase access to MAT for individuals who live in remote or underserved areas, lack consistent transportation, or have a travel-limiting disability or health condition. Audience members will learn about essential characteristics of, and differences in approaches to providing, mobile MAT services. The session will also discuss considerations for program replication, such as barriers and facilitators encountered during implementation. In addition to presenting case studies of two different mobile MAT programs, information shared during the session is based on a review of gray and peer-reviewed literature and several key informant interviews conducted with funding from the Bureau of Justice Assistance’s Comprehensive Opioid, Stimulant, and Substance Use Program.
The target audience for this beginner 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, Systems Based Practice.
Upon completion, learners will be able to:
- Describe mobile-based service approaches that can increase access to medications for addiction treatment.
- Compare mobile service approaches based on several implementation characteristics
- Identify barriers and facilitators that may influence program implementation and replication
