Medications for Opioid Use Disorder (MOUD) Among Culturally Diverse People with HIV, presented by James Peck, Psy.D. & William King, MD, JD

Course Description
This training will discuss the use of medications for Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) among a culturally diverse population of people with HIV (PWH), with a particular focus on the African-American and Latinx populations. The topic will be framed in the context of institutional racism and the social determinants of health. Social determinants of health such as unequal access to care for African-American and Latinx opioid users lead to situations such as the availability of methadone only in these communities, while access to buprenorphine is reserved primarily for White and higher socioeconomic status communities. The training will illuminate these issues through the presentation of two case studies with opportunities for discussion among the training participants. The presentation will include a number of examples of culturally specific engagement strategies and culturally-tailored interventions designed to increase access to care in communities that have historically had low trust in the healthcare system and inadequate access to care.Educational Objectives
By the end of this training, participants should be able to:

  1. Identify at least three social determinants of health that disproportionately affect culturally diverse communities of PWH and their access to care for Opioid Use Disorder (OUD).
  2. Specify at least two medications with demonstrated efficacy for the treatment of OUD among PWH.
  3. Recall at least two culturally-tailored interventions for the African American substance-using PWH population, and at least two culturally-tailored interventions for the Latinx substance-using PWH populations.
