Reducing Stigma Toward People with Opioid Use Disorder Among Primary Care Clinicians (NIH HEAL Initiative)

Funded by the NIH HEAL Initiative®

Primary care clinicians (PCCs) in clinics randomized to the intervention in COMPUTE 2.0 will be randomized 1:1 to the stigma reduction or comparison training, stratified by clinic and waiver status. Training will be conducted via an online learning software. PCCs will be asked to complete a brief training on the clinical decision support tool. PCCs in the stigma reduction intervention will hear patient narratives designed to reduce stigma about patients with opioid use disorder (OUD). PCCs in the comparison training will not get any stigma content, but will have training on using the clinical decision support tool. Immediately following the training, the PCCs will complete a survey of stigma beliefs and intentions to get waivered to prescribe buprenorphine. Use of the CDS will be monitored in both groups for 6 months.
