Worried about prescribing buprenorphine for addiction? ...about patient misuse or diversion? In this webinar, we provide a simple framework to conceptualize the doctor-patient relationship which can empower you to remain in a compassionate stance toward risky or non-adherent patients, while also helping them modify their behavior toward safer and more appropriate use. You will learn how to interpret the prescription drug monitoring database and urine toxicology tests, and integrate them into your practice. More importantly, you will find out what to do when these screening tests come up positive … without having to resort to rejection or retaliation, or experiencing feelings of burnout."
• Apply behavioral economics and the Prisoner’s Dilemma to understand the non-adherent patient taking buprenorphine (or other controlled medications)
• Integrate monitoring tools such as the prescription drug monitoring database and urine toxicology with the non-adherent buprenorphine patient
• Employ Tit for Tat as a strategy for moving the non-adherent buprenorphine patient toward better compliance and improved health
