New in CME Courses: Part 2 of the Get Smart 2017 Curriculum – Safe Means of Administering the Right Therapy using extended-release (ER) and long-acting (LA) opioids

Module 2 Now Available: Evaluating and Initiating Opioid ER/LA Analgesic Therapy


Target audience:  Primary Care Clinicians, Pain Management Specialists, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, Nurses, and other clinicians involved in the care of patients on extended-release/long-acting (ER/LA) opioid therapy.

Opioids are an effective option for pain control, but also carry significant risks, including respiratory depression and addiction. The FDA has implemented a Risk Evaluation and Mitigation System (REMS) for opioids, which involves specific requirements in the use of opioids.

To guide you through this important information, a peer coach – Yvonne D’Arcy, MS, CRNP, CNS, FAANP – will highlight key points and discuss the clinical implications of the REMS guidance.

In this second Module, we will discuss how to Evaluate and Initiate ER/LA Opioid Analgesic Therapy.

This activity, Evaluating and Initiating Opioid ER/LA Analgesic Therapy offers 0.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ and 0.5 ANCC contact hour.
