The Stepped Care for Opioid Use Disorder Train-the-Trainer (SCOUTT) program is a national VA initiative which aims to improve access to treatment medications for opioid use disorder (OUD) in primary care, pain management, and mental health clinics. The Seattle CESATE is conducting ongoing evaluations of SCOUTT to understand providers’ perspectives on the initiative and the outcomes for Veteran participants. Project aims also include to: assess patient retention in and compliance with SCOUTT, assess changes in number of waivered and prescribing providers, retention in and compliance with stepped care, and identify barriers and facilitators to implementing, sustaining and spreading OUD care.
