Public Webinar: Overview of the CDC Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain

June 10, 2016

Our sincere thanks to you as our federal partners for your engagement in both the development and dissemination of the CDC Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain.

One of our targeted strategies to implement the Guideline within practice is to imbed recommendations from the Guideline within education and training opportunities for providers. Accordingly, CDC will be hosting a seven-part webinar series about the Guideline, which will begin on Wednesday, June 22nd at 2:00pm EDT. The first webinar will provide an overview of the CDC recommendations and learn when and how opioids should be initiated for chronic pain, how to assess risk and address harms of opioid use, and when and how opioids should be discontinued. Subsequent modules will touch upon the various recommendations in the Guideline. Each one-hour webinar will be available as a live webinar broadcast and as archived recordings following the live webinars. These are free and offer continuing education credit to physicians, nurses, pharmacists, health educators, and other healthcare providers. The first four webinars are currently scheduled with the others to follow later this year:
