INTENSIVE COURSE IN PRESCRIBING AND PHARMACOLOGY OF CONTROLLED DRUGS: CURRENT ISSUES AND STRATEGIES FOR SUCCESSFUL PATIENT CARE
2022 SERIES FOR AUGUST AND NOVEMBER


Presented by the Medical Association of the State of Alabama, the Alabama Board of Medical Examiners and the Alabama Board of Nursing

Who Should Attend
The course in Prescribing and Pharmacology of Controlled Drugs is designed for physicians in all specialties, as well as physician assistants, certified registered nurse practitioners and nurse midwives, who need or wish to increase their knowledge and ability to effectively prescribe controlled medications that have the potential for misuse and abuse.

Statement of Need
Controlled drugs are being prescribed and dispensed at an increased rate to help patients cope with pain, anxiety, depression, insomnia, ADHD and myriad other disorders. Prescribing providers of controlled substances are faced with challenges in diagnosis and patient management across a spectrum of diverse patients and clinical settings. Controlled medications are unique in that they are frequently abused directly or through diversion. It is critical that prescribers be familiar with current practice guidelines and recommendations in order to stay up to date with best practices across an array of clinical scenarios. It is also important for the prescriber to continually improve their skills in caring for patients in practice settings that may not completely align with established guidelines, thereby calling for insight and professional judgment on how best to proceed. This activity will review cutting edge, best practice recommendations and guidelines across a variety of diagnostic and clinical settings that challenge the prescribing provider. These include clinical areas such as treatment of acute and chronic pain, identification and treatment of substance use disorders (especially prescription drug abusers), and addressing unique populations such as hospice patients.

Participant Learning Objectives
After attending this course, participants will be able to:
Describe the pharmacologic profiles of benzodiazepines, and the concurrent use of stimulants.
Identify the diagnostic criteria for acute and chronic pain, anxiety disorder, insomnia, depression and substance abuse.
Employ interviewing techniques relating to the diagnosis and management of substance abuse in general and prescription drug abusers in particular.
Discuss case management strategies in special situations, such as the elderly, hospice patients and renal sufficiency.
Discuss beliefs, attitudes and stereotypes about controlled substance prescribing, controlled drug abusers and chemical dependency and consider the therapeutic implications of treatments based upon these beliefs.
Describe circumstances in which it is appropriate to refer a patient to a pain specialist.
Recognize the need for early identification and the appropriate management for persons with psychiatric problems.
Identify appropriate screening tools for healthcare providers and their teams to detect substance use disorders in private practice. 
Recognize the non-opioid approach to pharmacological treatment of post-operative pain.
Describe the best practices for Medication-Assisted treatment with Buprenorphine for the treatment of addiction involving opioid use.
Recognize that improving the way opioids are prescribed by healthcare providers can ensure patients have access to safer, more effective chronic pain treatment while reducing the number of people who misuse, or abuse these drugs.
Define the eligibility requirements, rules, protocols, applications, and renewal processes required for PAs, CRNPs, and CNMs in a collaborative practice.
Recognize the symptoms of illicit drug use in patients in the emergency room and in private practice.
Identify and construct an opioid treatment plan that will reduce the chances of prescription drug abuse and non-compliance.
