Trainings to address Colorado’s opioid use epidemic

HealthTeamWorks offers five hours of on-site trainings geared to address the opioid-use epidemic with curriculum developed by IT MATTRs 2, a Colorado statewide initiative. This is a no-cost training and eligible providers and practices will receive compensation for the completion of the IT MATTRs 2 curriculum. 

Eligibility and How it Works

Any practice with at least one provider with a waiver to prescribe buprenorphine is eligible for the program. If you currently do not have a provider with a waiver, the next provider training will take place on December 1st; see below for details around the provider-compensated training opportunities.

Practices must commit to having staff receive the 5 hours of training on the IT MATTTRs Curriculum in order to receive the Practice Compensation; see below for details.

Practice Compensation

Practices who are currently participating in SIM are not eligible to receive additional compensation beyond their achievement-based payments, but are encouraged to incorporate the IT MATTTRs curriculum into their efforts.
