The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) launched two new opioid trainings that support providers in safer prescribing of opioids for chronic pain.
The modules are part of a series of interactive online trainings that feature recommendations from the CDC Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain, clinical scenarios, tools, and resource libraries to enhance learning.
The modules offer free continuing education.
- Determining Whether to Initiate Opioids for Chronic Pain: Identify and consider important patient factors when starting or continuing opioid therapy
- Implementing CDC’s Opioid Prescribing Guideline into Clinical Practice: Walk through a quality improvement process using the set of 16 clinical measures outlined in Quality Improvement and Care Coordination: Implementing the CDC Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain
