Host Organization


Are you interested in learning about medication-assisted treatment (MAT) and its integration into primary care? If you’re attending AcademyHealth’s National Health Policy Conference, join our poster session “Integrating Medication-Assisted Treatment into Primary Care: Insights from the Provider Perspective” on Tuesday, February 11 at 8 AM.

At this presentation, Altarum’s Lena Marceno will discuss the importance of MAT to help normalize and increase access to effective opioid use disorder treatment. We will present the findings of our research including what providers see as barriers to implementing MAT, recommended policy changes from the provider community, and best practice guidance on how providers have navigated policy changes to improve opioid use disorder treatment.

Read the full report on which this poster is based: Medication-Assisted Treatment and Recovery Best Practice Guide.
