(designed to meet requirements for state-mandated CME on safe opioid prescribing)
Faculty: Sarah Pointer, Clinical Director, Illinois Prescription Monitoring Program
The Illinois Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP), a clinical tool which assists physicians in ensuring patient safety, has grown in leaps in bounds in recent years. Illinois physicians with a controlled substance license are now required to register in the PMP, and must check the PMP for initial prescriptions of Schedule II narcotics. Many electronic health record systems are now integrated directly into the PMP.
Learn from Sarah Pointer, the Clinical Director of the PMP, about the importance of using the PMP, as well as new developments and improvements.
