New 3-Credit CME Online Course on Pain Management and Addiction

Resource for Your Practice

Several states have recently passed regulation requiring that MDs take 3 CMEs on opioids in order to renew their license. PPM Editorial Advisory Board Member Jennifer Schneider, MD, PhD, has created an online course to meet this need.

Available through Professional Boundaries, Inc., the AMA PRA Category 1 course will specifically educate practitioners in current pain management and addiction treatment methods, including how to: properly assess a patient’s needs including being able to differentiate between physical dependence on opioids and opioid addiction; implement safer, more effective treatment plans; apply current prescribing laws for controlled substances; and more.

According to Dr. Schneider, the course meets the requirements for relicensure in the states of Alaska, Arizona, California, Georgia, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, North Carolina, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Virginia, and Vermont, with Florida and Tennessee pending approval.
