Motivational Interviewing Boot Camp (REGISTRATION CLOSED)

This boot camp is to help case managers, care coordinators, community health workers, front line staff, medical assistants, or other non-provider care team staff help patients change unhealthy behaviors and find lasting motivation for improvement. This course explores the stages of change and what leads to behavior change, and identifies: the core aspects of the Motivational Interviewing (MI) model (avoiding argumentation, empathy, supporting self-efficiency); helpful and harmful interactions between client and provider/care-team to develop MI skills; appropriate MI-based response given patient-resistant scenarios; and how to help a client set an agenda, identify a goal, and develop an action plan.

MAT Waiver Training

Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) of Substance Use Disorders involves a combination of a medication that targets the brain and psychosocial interventions (e.g., counseling, skills development) aimed at improving treatment outcomes. Training on MAT is required to obtain a waiver from the DEA to prescribe buprenorphine, approved by the FDA for the treatment of substance use disorder. At the completion of this training physicians will have met the requirements for MAT which is mandatory for licensure in nine years. Nurse practitioners and physicians assistants will obtain a waiver after completing this training and an additional 16 hours of training.
