Effective Date: November 1, 2021
Expiration Date: November 1, 2024
Deaths from drug overdoses have increased in the nation driven in part by addiction to prescription painkillers and heroin. This education is meant to help providers make informed decisions about prescribing opioids for acute and chronic pain while encouraging the implementation of best practices for responsible opioid prescribing. Education developed by IPMA will meet Wisconsin and Minnesota’s educational requirements and will be delivered to prescribers and their health care team.
This activity was planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME). The Interstate Postgraduate Medical Association is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
The Interstate Postgraduate Medical Association designates this enduring activity for a maximum 3 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
This education meets the Minnesota and Wisconsin Medical Examining Board's emergency rule relating to continuing medical education on its opioid prescribing guideline.
