Opioid-Prescribing-logo.jpg

The Nurse Practitioner Healthcare Foundation has partnered with national, state and regional conferences around the U.S. to present the Live Program, “Opioid Prescribing: Safe Practice, Changing Lives,” a dynamic CE presentation focusing on issues related to the safe prescribing of extended release, long-acting opioids. This program discusses the patient selection and assessment of risk associated with opioid use for long-term management of chronic pain, the initiation and modification of ER/LA therapy, ongoing monitoring, as well as patient and caregiver education. Legal, regulatory and safety perspectives associated with ER/LA Opioid use are also included. The presentation was developed to be compliant with the 14 Point FDA Blueprint for ER/LA Opioid Analgesic REMS education by the Collaborative for REMS Education (CO*RE) and may be used by NPs from states with mandatory requirements for opioid education.

This program will be presented in 2016 at the conferences listed below.
