20ME064 - Treating Pain Safely: An Update for Prescribers

Description

In recognition for specific education on opioid use disorder (OUD) and innovative treatment for chronic and/or acute pain, this new workshop will provide updated information on evidenced-based treatment modalities including non-opioid alternatives to pain management. Medical providers will gain tools to reduce the risk of opioid overdose, treat pain safely and the skills to screen and treat substance use disorders (SUDs) in a patient-centered way. Participants will gain knowledge on:

  • Updated tapering recommendations for patients on chronic opioid therapy
  • Enhanced information on harm reduction strategies
  • Emerging data of postoperative pain management for patients with OUD
  • Addressing stigma and bias that prevent patients from receiving the best care


This program was designed to satisfy, in full, the North Carolina Medical Board's CME requirement for controlled substance prescribers. Per NCAC rules: 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 CE requirements as set forth by their licensing boards; requirements vary by discipline and board. This program has been approved by the North Carolina Veterinary Medical Board as meeting the CE requirement on the abuse of controlled substances for veterinarians and veterinary technicians.
