Improving the way opioids are prescribed through clinical practice guidelines can ensure patients have access to safer, more effective chronic pain treatment while reducing the number of people who misuse, abuse or overdose from these drugs. Northwest AHEC has assembled faculty who are subject matter experts in the field and produced ten online modules to serve all types of health care professionals.
As a physician in North Carolina, you can easily obtain the necessary 3 hours of controlled substance prescribing practice CME required for licensure renewal through Northwest AHEC’s “Best Practices in Opioid Prescribing and Management” array of offerings. You may be particularly interested in the modules authored by Dr. Carl Grey, Dr. Corey Richardson and Dr. Elizabeth Shilling to meet state board requirements.
