Prescribers will find modules that address content required by their individual boards for opioid-focused continuing education and other modules that highlight vulnerable and special populations like adolescents, geriatrics, those in hospice, pregnant women and those affected by homelessness. This activity is targeted to those interested in best practices for opioid prescribing and management and opioid use disorder, including physicians, advanced practitioners, nurses, behavioral health and addiction medicine specialists, and social service professionals.
