Barriers Rural Physicians Face Prescribing Buprenorphine for Opioid Use Disorder
Examines the barriers rural physicians who hold Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) waivers to prescribe buprenorphine face. Seeks to explain why some rural physicians who hold a DEA waiver choose not to prescribe buprenorphine, or treat a fewer number of patients than their waiver allows. Data was collected through a 2016 survey of all rurally located physicians with DEA waivers.
