Dear WISAM Members,
Our next teleconference is this Thursday June 28 at 7:00 pm. This will be our one and only teleconference of the summer so join us! Along with the always-lively dialogue among colleagues, some issues we will be discussing include updates on ongoing projects such as the conference and webinars (see below) as well as the State expansion of prescribing of buprenorphine by NPs and PAs and the requirement for MD supervisors for these prescribers. If you have a topic idea to submit for this or future teleconference calls, please send your ideas to WISAM@badgerbay.co.
Our Annual Conference is September 27-29, 2018 at the UW Pyle Center. CME wil be provided as well as credit for the MEB Opioid Prescribing educational requirement. Register here for the main conference (Thursday/Friday). On Saturday, September 29, we will be offering clinical training workshops for those who are prescribing (or considering prescribing) ORT. Primary Care providers will find these workshops very useful. For information and to register for the Saturday workshops, click this link.
Our 2018 Webinar Series is underway! The first of the four part series began on June 20th and was led by Drs. Bhatnagar and John Ewing. There are nearly 50 providers currentlyi registered to take part in some or all of the sessions. The next session will be presented live on Wednesday, July 18 at Meriter Hospital in Madison. It's not too late to register to access the recordings for any of the sessions, or attend the live presentations of the upcoming sessions. Learn more.
Happy summer to all!
Matthew Felgus, MD FASAM
