CDC Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain — United States, 2016 | MMWR
New Opioid Trainings for Providers: Initiating Opioid Therapy and Implementing the CDC Guideline
CDC launched two new opioid trainings that support providers in safer prescribing of opioids for chronic pain. The modules are part of a series of interactive online trainings that feature recommendations from the CDC Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain. The seventh module, Determining Whether to Initiate Opioids for Chronic Pain, helps providers identify and consider important patient factors when starting or continuing opioid therapy, while the eighth module, Implementing CDC’s Opioid Prescribing Guideline into Clinical Practice, walks providers through a quality improvement (QI) process using a set of 16 clinical measures outlined in the Quality Improvement and Care Coordination: Implementing the CDC Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain. Both modules include clinical scenarios and tools and a resource library to enhance learning. These and all the modules in the series offer free continuing education, available on our Training for Providers webpage.
