Public Workshop of the Committee on Medication-Assisted Treatment for Opioid Abuse Disorder
The Committee on Medication-Assisted Treatment for Opioid Use Disorder is hosting this public workshop to hear from individuals with relevant experience and expertise in the evidence base on medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid use disorder (OUD), the barriers to and opportunities for improving access to MAT for OUD, and the patient and community perspective. The objectives of the workshop are to:
- Review current knowledge and gaps in understanding regarding the effectiveness of MAT for treating OUD,
- Examine available evidence on the range of parameters and circumstances in which MAT can be effectively delivered (e.g., duration of treatment, populations, settings, and Interventions to address social determinants of health (SDH) as a component of MAT),
- Identify challenges in implementation and uptake, and
- Identify additional research needed on MAT for OUD.
