2019 Buprenorphine X-Waiver Training Series

These courses are FREE to all Wisconsin providers who are eligible to prescribe buprenorphine. Registration is required. 

MEB Opioid Prescribing Education: This live course has been approved by the Wisconsin Medical Examining Board as meeting the requirements for the two-hour continuing education course on responsible opioid prescribing per Med 13.03(3) of the Wisconsin Administrative Code.

This series is designed to increase treatment capacity for opioid use disorders by training more prescribers to be able to treat opioid use disorders with buprenorphine. 

Each session is presented as a live four-hour activity, which, when paired with ASAM's four-hour on-demand course, will provide necessary education for participants to qualify for their Buprenorphine X-Waiver. ASAM offers the additional 16 hours required for NPs, PAs, and other CNSs for no additional cost.  

Dates and locations are subject to change.
