Buprenorphine Physician-Pharmacist Collaboration in the Management of Patients With Opioid Use Disorder: CTN 0075


Brief description of study

This pilot study examines the feasibility and acceptability of transitioning office-based buprenorphine treatment of opioid use disorder from physicians to pharmacists. Results from this study will inform the development of a future multi-site randomized clinical trial.

Detailed Study Description

The overall objective of this study is to explore the feasibility of transitioning the care of adult patients with opioid use disorder (OUD) who receive office-based buprenorphine treatment (OBBT) from physicians to pharmacists. Physicians will induce buprenorphine treatment and complete the stabilization phase before referring patients to pharmacists for the management of monthly maintenance visits. This study will assess the feasibility and acceptability of a collaborative care model between physician and pharmacist by measuring recruitment rate, treatment retention rate, treatment compliance rate, and participants' substance use. Other assessments measured will include treatment fidelity, participant, physician, and pharmacist satisfaction with OUD care, participant safety, and the pharmacists' use of electronic health records and the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program.
