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.

As of July 1, 2017, all physicians (aside from 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.

 

  • Recognizing signs of the abuse or misuse of controlled substances
  • Controlled substance prescribing for chronic pain management
