As part of its continued advocacy efforts to help reverse the opioid epidemic in the United States, the AMA launched a microsite focused on providing physicians with state- and specialty-specific education and training resources. The microsite, end-opioid-epidemic.org, includes nearly 300 education and training resources across three major categories:

  1. Recommendations from the AMA Opioid Task Force  

  2. State medical society resources

  3. Medical specialty society resources

Physicians can use the site's "State Selector" and "Specialty Selector" to find tailored education and training resources. The AMA Opioid Task Force also has identified numerous national education and training resources. The site highlights the progress physicians have made in using prescription drug monitoring programs, reducing the nation's opioid supply, increasing treatment capacity and increasing access to naloxone.

 

To further support physicians and patients locating physicians authorized to treat opioid dependency with buprenorphine by state, each state-specific page includes a link to the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration Buprenorphine Treatment Practitioner Locator.
