Opioid CME - Meet WI DSPS Requirement

3-part course November 7, 14, 28

Have you made plans for your required opioid training?

Be sure to do it soon:

To continue to be able to prescribe opioids for your patients’ acute or chronic pain, you must meet the two-credit Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services’ New Continuing Medical Education Requirement. The requirement is still in effect for the current renewal period for Wisconsin physicians who hold an active DEA number for prescribing controlled substances.

There are numerous options for this training. But this is the only one presented by Family Physicians for Family Physicians. Your fellow FPs know the information you need and want most.

Our course is divided into three convenient sessions and can be viewed live or recorded, when you have time, or all at once.
