Buprenorphine Home Induction Tool (BUP) is an informative mobile application that guides patients on how to conduct Buprenorphine induction using a series of questions that the patient is asked in the mobile application.
The BUP mobile application is a tool to help those who are starting the first phase of buprenorphine treatment, the induction phase, at home. The use of this home induction app should be used in conjunction with direction and clinical support by a physician/prescriber. Using this app does not replace any discussion concerning buprenorphine use with ones physician or provider. To achieve the best results using this application, it is recommended that information about using buprenorphine, as well as alternative options available, are discussed with ones physician or provider. The Algorithm The algorithm that drives this app was based upon recommendations from the RAND Corporations SUMMIT: Procedures for Medication-Assisted Treatment of Alcohol or Opioid Dependence in Primary Care.
