    Closing Session - Evidence-based Pain Management: Addressing the Growing Role of Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants in Managing Patients with Acute and Chronic Pain

    3.0 CE Credits

    ATTENDANCE AT THIS SESSION WILL REQUIRE A SEPARATE REGISTRATION AS IT IS BEING HOSTED ON A DIFFERENT PLATFORM FROM THE OTHER CONFERENCE SESSIONS.
    Details will be sent to the registrants the week of October 12th.

    Primary care providers (PCPs) are responsible for almost half of all opioid prescriptions written in the US. A recent study found that primary care NPs and PAs wrote more opioid prescriptions than their physician colleagues. However, limited time, training, and access to resources often make it difficult for these clinicians to effectively evaluate their patients presenting with pain and choose a treatment that best fits each patient’s needs.

    This CME activity, “Evidence-based Pain Management: Addressing the Growing Role of Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants in Managing Patients with Acute and Chronic Pain,” will help community NPs and PAs use pain-assessment tools to evaluate patients, improve their familiarity with the FDA Blueprint guidelines for treatment selection, and understand when to use non-opioid pharmacotherapies for neuropathic pain.

    This activity is supported by an independent educational grant from the Opioid Analgesic REMS Program Companies. Please visit: https://ce.opioidanalgesicrems.com/RpcCEUI/rems/pdf/resources/ List_of_RPC_Companies.pdf for a listing of REMS Program Companies. This activity is intended to be fully compliant with the Opioid Analgesic REMS education requirements issued by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
