Participate in Tennessee Commission on Pain and Addiction Medicine Education (Professional Schools)

Part of the TN Together Plan, the Commission on Pain and Addiction Medicine Education will develop competencies for Tennessee’s medical educational institutions to address proper treatment for pain, safe and effective prescribing practices, and proper diagnoses and treatment for individuals abusing or misusing controlled substances.

 This 19-member commission is made up of experts from state, public, and private medical educational institutions, the Tennessee Department of Health, a broad group of professional associations, and licensed health care practitioners.

How can I do that?
Universities and professional schools can adopt the new standards upon their completion.
