    Safer Opioid Prescribing Education: The Effect of Mandatory Education on CME Outcomes
    Thursday, September 24, 2020, 3:00 - 4:00 PM ET

    In the US, there is concurrent under-treatment of pain and overprescribing of opioids with associated opioid-related harms. In response, numerous states have passed laws mandating pain and/or opioid prescribing continuing education. There is national debate about whether this education should be voluntary or mandatory for all prescribers.

    During this session, presenters will describe the impact that the New York State mandated pain management CME education had on safer opioid prescribing training outcomes compared to the training without a state mandate.
