18ME038 - Treating Pain Safer: Fewer Opioids and Better Results Controlled Substances Education for Prescribers

Description

Literature has shown that prescribers receive little education on the treatment of pain resulting in less effective pain treatment with worse outcomes. Attendees will learn the evidence-based analysis of the relative effectiveness of medications and their side effects, recommendations on how to improve treatment of acute and chronic pain and recognizing substance use/opioid use disorders. This program will include the three required topics outlined by the new CME requirement in 21 NCAC 32R .0101:
• Controlled substances prescribing practices
• Recognizing signs of the abuse or misuse of controlled substances
• Controlled substance prescribing for chronic pain management

As of July 1, 2017 all physicians (other than residents), physician assistants, nurse practitioners, podiatrists, and dentists who prescribe controlled substances must satisfy the controlled-substance prescribing CME requirement set forth in 21 NCAC 32R .0101. Requirements vary by discipline and board. Prescribers will turn in controlled substance CME when they renew licensure.
