  • Care coordination between rural primary care and telemedicine to expand medication treatment for opioid use disorder: Results from a single-arm, multisite feasibility study | May 12th TM SIG 8:30am PST/11:30am EST
    • The use of telemedicine (TM) has accelerated in recent years, yet research on the implementation and effectiveness of TM-delivered medication treatment for opioid use disorder (MOUD) has been limited. In this presentation, Yih-Ing Hser, Ph.D., one of two Principal Investigators of the Greater Southern California Node of the National Institute on Drug Abuse Clinical Trials Network, will discuss the feasibility of implementing a care coordination model involving MOUD delivered via an external TM provider to expand access to MOUD for patients in rural settings.
