“MOUD Modifications in a COVID-19 World”
VT State Opioid Treatment Authority (SOTA)
MOUD is almost universally identified as a lifesaving intervention however COVID-19 has required practitioners to reconsider how to initiate care, monitor treatment responses, and modify treatment plans while minimizing face to face contact. We will discuss the regulatory and clinical opportunities and challenges, and lessons learned to date. Tony Folland is the Clinical Services Manager and State Opioid Treatment Authority for Vermont.
