Description

Providing comprehensive services in conjunction with medication is the most effective method of treating opioid addiction. This CEU course provides nurses with general information about buprenorphine products - Suboxone (buprenorphine and naloxone) and Subutex (buprenorphine) - for the pharmacological treatment of opioid addiction. This course can also serve as a resource to help nurses working with community physicians to improve treatment outcomes for individuals receiving office-based treatment for opioid addiction.

Objectives

On completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
1. Discuss the nurse's role with patients receiving buprenorphine for the treatment of addiction.

2. Enumerate typical signs and symptoms of the opioid withdrawal syndrome.

3. Explain under which circumstance buprenorphine by itself would precipitate withdrawal in opioid-dependent individuals.

4. Investigate the best way to avoid precipitated withdrawal.

5. Identify the advantages associated with providing office-based treatment.

6. Describe what is crucial for nurses to do when dispensing the first medication dose.
