This module focused on if/when to transition patients to higher or lower levels of care. It covers: why a treatment transition decision is a clinical judgement best done by a team (and the patient); patterns of behavior that might indicate a need for a higher or lower level of care; descriptions of treatment transition options such as medically supervised withdrawal, inpatient treatment, Opioid Treatment Programs; how to work with the patient to plan for treatment transition, including harm reduction strategies; a list of tasks and the importance of clarifying who is responsible for each of them; and transition options for stable patients.
