Public Chapter 430 of the State of Tennessee and the Tennessee Clinical Practice Guidelines for Outpatient Management of Chronic non-Malignant Pain defines appropriate measures and requirements for all practitioners who prescribe controlled substances to complete two hours of continuing education relevant to controlled drug prescribing.
Additionally, in July 2012, the FDA approved a risk evaluation and mitigation strategy (REMS) for extended-release (ER) and long-acting (LA opioid medication. The REMS is part of a multi-agency Federal effort to address the growing problem of prescription drug abuse and misuse.
This two-hour, interprofessional panel, educational activity combines the Tennessee guidelines and REMS goals to increase understanding of appropriate patient assessment and prescribing practices among Tennessee and other health care professionals to help reduce misuse, abuse, and overdose deaths associated with ER/LA opioid analgesics.
Participants will need to complete the post-test (70% pass rate) and program evaluation to receive CME credit. Once the requirements are successfully completed, a certificate can be downloaded. The program can be completed at participant's convenience.
A Certificate of Completion is provided after the completion of required activities (post-test and evaluation) for health care professionals who want to self-claim Continuing Education (CE) credit.
AOA and AMA PRA CME for this activity will automatically be submitted to the appropriate accrediting body.
The online course will include an Outcomes Measure assessment immediately after the activity and as an optional 90-day assessment. Participants can obtain one additional Category 1-B Credit for completion of the 90-day outcomes assessment
