These free CME panel sessions are designed for controlled substances prescribers to complete up to two hours of the required education in opioid prescribing. A one hour online training is recommended before the live training. Together they fulfill the three hour requirement. Topics include managing acute and chronic pain, identifying when patients are misusing opioids, and what to do about patients who have developed a substance use disorder. The Governor’s Institute has partnered with the North Carolina Medical Board to help bring these educational panel sessions to communities across the state.
