Health professionals can change the way they treat pain and reduce the chance that patients will become addicted to prescription medication. This can prove quite challenging for providers who must attempt to minimize misuse without impeding a patient’s access to medical care. Online training courses can help! Universities, medical associations, and other organizations are making it easier for medical practitioners to expand their knowledge about the opioid crisis, pain management, prescribing methods, and the science of addiction. Some online resources are free while others may have a cost association. Even though there is price for those courses, they tend to offer continuing education credits (CMEs).
How can I do that?
Contact or do a web search of universities or medical associations to see what resources may be available regarding continuing education courses, or check out some of these organizations to help you get started.
