It is important that practitioners keep abreast of current best medical practices and how to implement them properly. This 45 minute online program provides an overview of these elements, intended for all who prescribe controlled substances.
Includes information on Tennessee Chronic Pain Guidelines.
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.
