||Tuesday: THE CHANGING LANDSCAPE OF OPIOID PRESCRIBING @ 7:00 PM
A growing awareness of the severity and impact of opioid misuse in our nation has led to a flurry of governmental efforts to address this epidemic. From new CDC prescribing guidelines, to state mandates to check state drug registries or PDMPs before prescribing, to recommendations to the FDA to mandate prescriber training--these efforts will impact how you practice as a physician.
Join the AOA to learn more about what these efforts mean for you, and what the AOA is doing to ensure policymakers hear the voice of the osteopathic profession, especially to understand OMTs role as an effective non-pharmacological modality.
This program is accredited by the American Osteopathic Association, for a maximum of 1.5 of AOA Category 1-A credits
