Course Description

Management of acute and chronic pain are some of the most common reasons necessitating visits to healthcare providers. Pain management could potentiate or coincide with the misuse or abuse of prescription medications. Active awareness and integration of current Tennessee Chronic Pain Guidelines into practice may help address opioid misuse and abuse from the perspective of the physician, advanced practice provider and pharmacist.

Learning Objectives

After participating in this CME activity, participants should be able to describe and discuss:
  • Abuse, addiction, and misuse of controlled substances (CS) and resulting negative sequela to patient and public safety,
  • Ongoing goals, purpose, and outcomes of the Controlled Substance Monitoring Database (CSMD) based upon data compiled and analyzed over the previous year regarding prescribing of CS and how providers can effectively collaborate and partner with the CSMD to facilitate responsible and accountable prescribing practices.
  • How Tennessee Chronic Pain Guidelines can be integrated into daily practice to guide and evaluate initiation and continuance of CS therapies for selected individuals and when to refer to pain or rehabilitation specialists, when clinically warranted.
