Project Name: UI-TEAM: Utilizing Interdisciplinary Training to Educate and increase Access to MAT Project Summary: UI-TEAM will advance education on opioid use disorders (OUD) for medical students, residents, and clinical faculty in the University of Illinois Health System. This will be accomplished by implementing a DATA waiver training program at the medical school, residency, and faculty levels, paired with multidisciplinary clinical training and modeling of evidence-based practices in the treatment of OUD across the UI Health System. Population(s) to be served: Between 1999 and 2016, opioid related deaths in the state of Illinois have increased from 3.9 to 15.3 deaths per 100,000 individuals with the rate of deaths in Chicago (26.8 per 100,000 individuals) robustly higher. The patients of UI Health who present with OUD mirrors the most devastated areas of Cook County with the highest rates of opioid-related deaths. This project seeks to educate providers within the UI Health System on the management of OUD, focusing on training of medical students, residents, and faculty. There are over 1,200 medical students across the University of Illinois campuses in Chicago, Rockford, and Peoria. The medical school has a high rate of placing graduates in Medically Underserved Communities such as rural practices, FQHCs, and jail clinics. Strategies/interventions: UI-TEAM will encompass a variety of different educational activities focused on OUD, including DATA waiver training, didactic training, and clinical experiences for medical students, residents, and faculty. By educating students and providers across multi-disciplinary settings, we will foster a rich and versatile educational experience, as well as build a community throughout the UI Health System that is dedicated to evidence-based screening, evaluation, and management of OUD. Project goals and measurable objectives: The primary goals of the project include: 1) Develop and implement a DATA waiver training program for medical students at the University of Illinois at Chicago, Rockford, and Peoria; by September 2022, 50% of graduating students will have completed their DATA waiver training. 2) Ensure faculty with the knowledge, training, expertise, and experience necessary to train students on DATA waiver content are secured at the University of Illinois at Chicago; by September 2022, we will show a 50% improvement in comfort and competence in OUD management, and double our DATA waiver trainers. 3) Develop and implement an OUD education program (including DATA waiver training) as part of the internal medicine, family medicine, emergency medicine, and obstetrics/gynecology departments, including both the residents and faculty; by September 2022, the training will be incorporated into the residency curriculum of the above specialties, and residents will be trained on standardized inpatient and outpatient protocols to guide the management of OUD.
