Addressing the Opioid Epidemic: Recommendations from CDC (Web Based)

Course Number: WB2857

This module will look at the CDC recommendations regarding the prescription of opioids for chronic pain. Given that it is sometimes hard to determine when acute pain becomes chronic pain, recommendations are also included related to prescribing opioids for acute pain. You will have the opportunity to examine the implications of these recommendations for treating your patients, and to practice making the best choices for their overall health and well-being.

Please refer to the CDC Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain for additional information as needed during this training.

Topics covered:
• Why a guideline for prescribing opioids is needed
• Key recommendations in the CDC guideline for prescribing opioids
