National Institute on Drug Abuse offers two free online CMEs/CEs
The number of prescriptions filled for opioid pain relievers has increased dramatically, leading the CDC to identify prescription drug abuse a problem of "epidemic" proportions. To better equip physicians and other health professionals against this crisis, the National Institute on Drug Abuse offers two free online CMEs/CEs:
Safe Prescribing for Pain (1.25 credits) teaches the prevalence of prescription opioid abuse and explores ways to effectively screen for and prevent abuse in patients with pain.
Managing Pain Patients Who Abuse Rx Drugs (1.75 credits) identifies the prevalence of opioid addiction and dependence in patients with chronic pain, and assists health care providers in identifying emerging abuse behaviors.
