AAPP’s OUD Education Program is designed to be part of the solution in addressing this public health crisis by educating pharmacists on how to identify patients with OUD, when to refer untreated patients to providers for treatment, how to develop/recommend evidence‐based treatment plans for OUD, and the steps to monitoring prescribed treatments.
