  • 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 how to recognize 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

    • Recognizing signs of the abuse or misuse of controlled substances

    • Controlled substance prescribing for chronic pain management

    This program includes up to 3.0 hours of controlled substances content. 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.
