Site Principle investigator: Meredith Schade, MD

This study is for people in the hospital with infections related to opioid use disorder (OUD). The study seeks to test a new model of care in which OUD is managed by infectious diseases specialists and hospitalists concurrent with management of the OUD-related infections, using long-acting injectable buprenorphine, followed by referral as soon as possible after hospital discharge to community resources for long-term treatment of OUD.
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT04180020
