  • Check the state, county, or local Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP), where available, for each new patient admission in compliance with any relevant state rules or regulations
  • Conduct screening and assessment for co-occurring substance use and mental disorders and develop a plan to either deliver or coordinate any services determined to be necessary to address any identified co-occurring disorders
  • Develop and implement outreach and engagement strategies to increase access to MOUD and related services for diverse populations with OUD
  • Ensure all applicable practitioners working on the project obtain any federal, state, or other required training on substance use disorders and/or opioid use disorder for the prescribing of buprenorphine
  • Build funding mechanisms and service delivery models with rural and resource-limited counties and municipalities
  • Use telehealth services, or other innovative interventions, to reach, engage, and retain patients in treatment
