Prescription opioids are the leading cause of injury death in the U.S. Responsible opioid prescribing is an important part of any medical practice. This activity is designed to address evidence based safe opioid prescribing practices and protocol for opioid treated chronic pain patients.
This education meets the Wisconsin licensing requirements for opioid prescribing continuing medical education. The Wisconsin Medical Examining Board Opioid Prescribing guidelines was established to help providers make informed decisions about acute and chronic pain treatment -pain lasting longer than three months or past the time of normal tissue healing. The guideline encourages providers to implement best practices for responsible prescribing which includes prescribing the lowest effective dose for the shortest possible duration for post-operative care and acutely-injured patients.
