Pharmacists remain an underutilized resource in the treatment of opioid use disorder (OUD). Although studies have engaged pharmacists in dispensing medications in OUD treatment (MOUD), few studies have evaluated collaborative care models in which pharmacists are an active, integral part of a primary care team offering OUD care. In this Phase 1 project, we seek to leverage a promising model of pharmacist-integrated care for OUD to 1) employ a mixed methods approach to evaluate the feasibility and acceptability of implementing a pharmacist-integrated model of MOUD into the clinical workflow of a diverse array of clinical sites and 2) evaluate the impact of the pharmacist-integrated model on the clinical site’s capacity for MOUD care and on patient engagement in OUD care.
