About This Activity

Do you prescribe opioid medications? If so, this program is for you. Each year, millions of patients are treated for a variety of serious medical conditions with prescription drugs whose therapeutic benefits are accompanied by psychoactive effects. Recent indicators reveal that the misuse and abuse of prescription drugs are rising, and we are faced with the challenge of minimizing the potential for misuse without impeding patients? access to needed medical care. This course will provide specific knowledge and skills associated with safe prescribing and will address areas of epidemiology, legal and regulatory issues, and clinical strategies for managing difficult patient situations.
