A Tool to Engage the Patient in Web-based Coordinated Treatment of Opioid Addiction with Buprenorphine
Treatment with buprenorphine is effective and is of tremendous value. However, the treatment requires coordinated attention to multiple details on the part of the patient and the provider if it is to proceed smoothly and succeed. We are developing and testing a novel supporting framework for OBOT called The Buprenorphine Patient Support Center (BupPatient). In the experience, the patient and provider work together to establish, document and assure understanding of a standard protocol for treating opioid addiction with buprenorphine.
