Responding to the Opioid Crisis
Because of their role as safety net providers, health centers are on the front lines of responding to the opioid crisis. We developed this workshop to help health centers and their staff identify and address key and emerging risk areas related to providing services in response to the opioid epidemic.
A health center’s ability to respond effectively is informed in large part by its ability to identify and mitigate the risks associated with identifying and treating patients with substance use disorders (and specifically opioid use disorders). This workshop follows the patient-provider relationship, identifying ways to mitigate the risks associated with prescribing opioids, developing medication-assisted treatment programs and terminating the patient-provider relationship. FTLF attorneys will also update attendees on compliance issues related to accepting and managing federal grants for substance use disorder services, including specific Section 330 concerns. This workshop will also address how the federal confidentiality requirements for certain substance use disorder records (42 CFR Part 2) apply to health centers and how to comply with the consent, notice, and other disclosure requirements.
Session topics will include:
- Risk management strategies related to prescribing opioids and developing MAT services in the health center
- Starting, managing and terminating the patient-provider relationship
- Determining whether the health center’s substance use disorder services are covered by Part 2
- Chief Operating Officers
- Clinical Leadership
- Compliance Officers
- Risk Managers
- Quality Staff
- Behavioral Health and Substance Use Disorder Staff
After this training, attendees will be able to:
- Develop risk management activities that respond to key risk areas associated with prescribing opioids
- Develop risk management activities that respond to key risk areas associated with providing MAT services
- Determine whether 42 CFR Part 2 applies to the health center’s current or planned substance use disorder services
