Opioid CME - Alternatives to Opioid Prescribing
In 2017, the Rhode Island Department of Health, in response to the growing opioid crisis, has included 8 hours of mandated training for providers that prescribe opioids and other schedule II drugs.
This mandated training must be completed prior to the provider's license renewal. For PAs, that deadline is June 30th, 2019.
To help PAs meet this mandate, the Rhode Island Academy of PAs has assembled a program with local experts that meets the requirements set forth by the RI DOH.
Providers wha have already acquired some of the required CME training may choose to register for either day in order to complete their 8 hour requirement.
