New Complimentary CME Course: Prescribing Opioids Safely
We are pleased to offer a new complimentary on-demand CME course, Prescribing Opioids Safely. Opioids play an important role in pain management—both in the acute and the chronic settings. Unfortunately, the dramatic increase in opioid use over the past few decades has resulted in an opioid-related epidemic of addiction and death.
Our new course is designed for physicians with practices that do not routinely treat patients for pain management. It presents the latest guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), additional information for clinical applications, and case studies pulled from malpractice claims. It covers what is known about the epidemic and what can help patients to manage pain and avoid addiction, abuse, and mortality.
