We are asking physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners to complete an online survey, Ability to Treat Opioid Use Disorder in West Virginia, designed to assess providers’ availability and willingness to prescribe medication-assisted treatment (MAT) to patients with Opioid Use Disorder (OUD). The resulting data will be used to help improve public policy to better address the opioid epidemic in West Virginia. This research project is a joint effort of the WV Department of Health and Human Resources, Marshall Health, WV School of Osteopathic Medicine, and West Virginia University under the direction of Garrett Moran, PhD at WVU and Lyn O’Connell, PhD, at Marshall Health.

Voluntarily completing this survey should take no more than 7 to 10 minutes of your time and requires
no examination of records. Your answers will remain COMPLETELY CONFIDENTIAL. Before completing
the survey, or at any time, you may ask questions of the individuals administering it by contacting
Brianna Sheppard, PhD, at 304-293-1444 or absheppard@uhsc.wvu.edu. WVU IRB acknowledgment of  this protocol is on file.
