Through the Opioid Risk Prevention Partnership, the SCMA is sharing resources to help physicians and clinical care teams facilitate conversations with patients who have acute pain, chronic pain, and addiction. On April 15, 2019, the Partnership released a new CME, Effective Pain Management for a Healthier SC: A CME on Acute Pain, Chronic Pain, and Opioid Misuse/Opioid Use Disorder. The CME is a synthesis of current evidence, and is ready for your clinical application to real-world cases.
Subjective, Objective, Assessment, and Plan (SOAP) notes present quick, easy-to-follow mock-patient cases, followed by a clinical discussion with links to supporting resources. This one hour, high-yield PDF CME is free for SCMA members and is being offered to other licensed health care providers for free for a limited time.
