Program description:
Buprenorphine is used in medication-assisted treatment of opioid use disorder. Due to its unique properties, its mechanism of action is often misunderstood. In this webinar, Dmitri M. Arbuck, MD, of the Indiana Polyclinic, will explain how buprenorphine works, how it is used and its benefits and pitfalls.

At the end of this webinar, attendees will be able to:  

  • Understand the main differences between the most frequently used opioids and buprenorphine.
  • Explain the principles of buprenorphine prescribing.
  • Develop insight into the basics of pharmacogenomics in relation to opioids.
  • Explain ways to diminish perioperative opioid use.
