Webinar: Creating an Effective Telehealth Patient Experience for MOUD During the COVID-19 Pandemic

April 06, 2020

Thank you to all those who have joined us in previous webinars in our ongoing series “FORE’s COVID-19 National Emergency Response: Maintaining Access to MOUD.”

The abrupt transition to telemedicine to maintain MOUD treatment during the COVID-19 pandemic holds significant impact for providers and patients alike. In our previous webinars, we have focused on the federal and state emergency regulatory changes facilitating greater use of telemedicine and provided guidance for hospitals and clinicians on how to implement telemedicine in compliance with new temporary regulatory requirements. This week’s webinar will focus on the patient experience, specifically how to create a clinical telehealth environment and prepare patients so that there is effective engagement.

Please join us as we welcome Tanya Lord, PhD, MPH, Director of Patient & Family Engagement at the Foundation for Healthy Communities in New Hampshire, Lara Weinstein, MD, MPH, DrPH, Associate Professor of Family and Community Medicine at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, and Joshua Carter, PsyD, Director of MAT and Addiction Services at Cabin Creek Health Systems in West Virginia, on Thursday, April 9 at 3pm EST, to lead a discussion on the impact of the COVID-19 national emergency on the patient care experience and the importance of preparing patients to adapt to the use of telehealth for effective MOUD treatment. The panelists will provide tools and tips from their own clinical work, as well as review the latest federal and state policies related to this issue. An open Q&A session will follow the presentation.

We continue to invite you to look at our Resources page for the most up-to-date information, guidance, and recordings of our previous webinars. As always, please reach out with questions and/or resources that you believe would benefits others.
