INTENSIVE COURSE IN PRESCRIBING AND PHARMACOLOGY OF CONTROLLED DRUGS:
CRITICAL ISSUES AND COMMON PITFALLS
Presented by the Medical Association of the State of Alabama, the Alabama Board of Medical Examiners and the Alabama Board of Nursing
12-HOUR COURSE: SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 20 – SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 21
STATEMENT OF NEED
Controlled substances are prescribed and dispensed today at an increasing rate to help patients cope with pain, insomnia, anxiety, depression, ADHD and a myriad of other disorders. Studies show that most practitioners are rather conservative when prescribing controlled drugs, while a small number are at times overly aggressive. In addition, controlled substance medications are falling into the hands of increasing numbers of prescription drug abusers.
How can the practitioner more effectively understand the pharmacologic profiles for controlled drugs, identify diagnostic criteria for appropriate prescribing and consider the therapeutic implications of specific substance use by individual patients? This special intensive course has been developed to enhance the physician’s ability to effectively prescribe controlled medications, while minimizing their misuse whenever possible.
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.
