The Pennsylvania Department of Health (DOH), in conjunction with the Pennsylvania Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs (DDAP), will be hosting eight regional Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) Summits this fall. The purpose of these summits is to promote awareness of MAT options for opioid use disorder and to increase the number of practitioners using the waiver to prescribe buprenorphine in an office-based setting.
Participants in the summits will include physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners, as well as administrative and clinical support staff in their practices. Other industry stakeholders could also benefit and are welcome to attend.
A web page has been established on DDAP’s website which includes the summit dates, counties in each region, and Save the Date flyers for each summit. This web page will be updated as more information becomes available.
Attendance is free, and registration will open in early September. Another email will be sent when registration opens. Questions can be directed to this email.
