INTENSIVE COURSE IN PRESCRIBING AND PHARMACOLOGY OF CONTROLLED DRUGS: CURRENT ISSUES AND STRATEGIES FOR SUCCESSFUL PATIENT CARE
2022 SERIES FOR MARCH, 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.
