Effective Pain Management for a Healthier South Carolina: CME on Acute Pain, Chronic Pain, and Opioid Misuse/Opioid Use Disorder

Credits: 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits

Category: Downloadable

Many continuing medical education (CME) courses are available on pain management and opioid misuse. However, few CME activities provide guidance that can be used in real-life clinical situations. The guidance presented in this CME is primarily derived from publicly available sources such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) opioid prescribing guidelines, Oregon State Resource for Professionals Treating Pain, Acute Pain Management: Meeting the Challenges by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, and current National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) recommendations on the treatment of opioid use disorder.
