Take This Course

Description: This in-depth course will review the scope of the current opioid crisis, including an historical lookback on how we arrived at this epidemic. The pharmacology of opioids and their antagonists, as well as the standards of prescribing and e-prescribing opioids for acute and chronic pain, will be reviewed. This will be followed by a discussion on the alternative and adjuncts to opioids for pain management, including evidence-based addiction treatment options and optimal standard of care treatments for pain. This course will review recent legislative updates and how it affects you, the practitioner.

As a FCEP member, the cost was minimal, but the quality and content of the 2.5 hour program was excellent, well researched and very educational. The expertise of the presenters (Drs. Jay Falk, Josef Thundiyil and Aaron Wohl) was evident and welcomed. I enjoyed the course as I know you will too.
