New in CME Courses: Part 4 of the Get Smart 2017 Curriculum – Safe Means of Administering the Right Therapy using extended-release (ER) and long-acting (LA) opioids

Module 4 Now Available: Counseling Patients and Caregivers About the Safe Use of ER/LA Opioid Analgesics

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 fourth Module, we will discuss Counseling Patients and Caregivers About the Safe Use of ER/LA Opioid Analgesics.

This activity, Counseling Patients and Caregivers About the Safe Use of ER/LA Opioid Analgesics offers 0.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ and 0.5 ANCC contact hour.
