Using BupPractice and Getting Credit
Do I have to pay for the activities?
The activities are free for the first 100 customers. After that, the cost is $8/activity.
How does this work?
First, you need to register for the site. Then you will have access to the content. After you pass the post-test, you will fill out the post-assessments to receive your certificate for the activity you completed.
Is there a print version?
All of our content needs to be used online to use the interactive elements. However, the activities that are not case-based are also available in PDFs. Look for the “Alternative Format” button on the same page as the interactive online content. Upon opening the PDF , you will be able to download the PDF to view later.
Can I retake the activity?
Yes, but it is only possible to receive one certificate for a single experience. If you want to learn more about substance abuse treatment and require continuing education credits, please consider our other activities.
How do I view my certificates?
Users may view their certificate by accessing the “My Account” page beneath their username in the upper right-hand corner of the site.
I need a copy of my certificate and I can’t find it.
Please contact us to request a copy. It helps if you can provide the username or email you used and the list of activities for which you need certificates and the approximate date of completion.
Do you offer DATA-2000 qualifying buprenorphine training?
Not anymore. The current activities are CE/CME only. However, we did offer DATA-2000 qualifying training until April 14, 2019. After that date, we no longer offered an official training activity that satisfied the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) requirement. The 8-hour DATA-2000 training activity is the training currently needed to qualify for a waiver to treat over 30 patients at the same time. The 8-hour training is no longer needed to qualify for a waiver to treat 30 or fewer patients.
Do you offer waiver-qualifying buprenorphine training for NPs and PAs?
Clinical Tools, Inc. no longer offers training (as of April 14, 2019) that satisfied the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) requirement for a waiver-qualifying training activity, which is currently required to treat more than 30 patients at the same time. If you completed our training prior to that date, please review the current waiver guidelines on how to proceed. We are happy to help you navigate.
Can I get continuing education credits for taking the courses?
Yes, please review the activity description page for all available credit types, including AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™.
About the Website
Who is this site for?
This site was developed to train both providers and other clinicians who treat opioid-dependent patients with buprenorphine or manage and refer patients with opioid use disorder. Our activities are for any health professional seeking CME/CEs on the topic of prescribing buprenorphine for opioid use disorder. It is likely to be of particular interest to the following practitioners who may apply for a waiver to treat up to 30 patients at a time with buprenorphine and who are exempted from training requirements: physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists, certified registered nurse anesthetists, and certified nurse-midwives. Please note that our partnership with ASAM expired on April 14, 2019, so we no longer provide Waiver training, which is currently required for treating more than 30 patients at a time.
Who developed this site?
Buprenorphine Practice was developed by Clinical Tools, Inc., funded by a contract with the National Institute on Drug Abuse (#HHSN271200555303C). Clinical Tools, Inc., is a small, physician-run business dedicated to harnessing the potential of the Internet to create scalable, usable, and broadly available tools for health researchers, clinicians, and consumers.
How is my privacy protected on your website?
Clinical Tools, Inc. will not share your personal information with any third parties. However, we provided ASAM with a list of all qualified learners who completed our waiver training activity before April 14, 2019.
