How Does the Opioid Safe Prescribing Program Work?

Safe Opioid Prescribing comprises real-world scenarios where the user is required to make clinically appropriate choices within multiple patient engagements in accordance with the core curriculum on safe opioid prescribing. The user is educated and assessed on their proficiency in screening, evaluation, and treatment planning. As a result of the successful completion of this digital learning solution the user is ready to:

  • Prescribe opioids according to medical best practices, rules, and regulations.
  • Develop professional relationships with patients that reduce the risks of addiction.
  • Know how to interact with and treat at-risk patients.
  • Manage opioid abuse and misuse.
  • View opioid abuse as a chronic disease that needs treating with expertise and compassion.
