We now know that overdoses from prescription opioids are a driving factor in the 15-year increase in opioid overdose deaths. Since 1999, the amount of prescription opioids sold in the U.S. has nearly quadrupled, yet there has not been an overall change in the amount of pain that Americans report. This comprehensive course, developed by experts from Collaborative for REMS Education (CO*RE), incorporates all six units outlined in the FDA blueprint for safe opioid prescribing. Attend this webinar if you want to be able to: -- Counsel patients and caregivers about safer use of opioids; -- Describe strategies for diagnosing and managing opioid-addicted patients; and --
Practice techniques for safe opioid prescribing. ** ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: **
This webinar is part of a series of three webinars. To see information about all of the webinar, please visit: http://attcnetwork.org/regional-centers/content.aspx?rc=centraleast&
