  • Implement depot buprenorphine as an OAT for opioid dependency, specifically in relation to prescribing, induction, dose alterations & reduction off the drug
  • Incorporate treatment with depot buprenorphine into their practice
  • Comply with regulatory requirements of prescribing and storing of depot buprenorphine.
