One-hour CME video on opiate prescribing guidelines

The Governor’s Cabinet Opiate Action Team (GCOAT) for Prescriber Education developed a one-hour continuing education video to provide information to health care professionals regarding the Guidelines for Prescribing Opioids for the treatment of Chronic, Non-Terminal Pain. The Guidelines have been adopted by the Medical Board, Nursing Board, Pharmacy Board and Dental Board and establish a trigger point for re-assessment of chronic pain patients receiving opioids at certain levels for 90 days or longer.
