Board of Governors Meeting: April 16, 2019 -- Webinar Recording
Among the newly approved awards are four projects focused on improving treatment for people with opioid use disorders. Three of those awards—in Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, and Maryland—focus on patients treated for OUD in doctors’ offices with the medication buprenorphine and seek to determine which psychosocial treatments work best in combination with that medication to help these patients abstain from opioid use. The fourth awarded project, in Connecticut, will compare two approaches for supporting obstetricians who treat pregnant women with OUD with medication-assisted treatment.
All PCORI Board meetings are open to the public. This meeting was held via teleconference/webinar with no public comment period.
