The Montana Medical Association and its partners designed a three hour course, delivered through four online modules to help health care teams find the proper balance between providing appropriate treatment for patients while protecting them from opioid addiction. Upon completion of the four module webcasts, medical professionals will receive a CME Certificate.
The series provides valuable direction for physicians and non-physicians who are involved in patient care concerning opioid medications. Physicians are encouraged to include all appropriate members of their teams in this training.
