• OUR MISSION

    Improve the health of the people of Wisconsin by supporting and strengthening physicians' ability to practice high-quality patient care in a changing environment.

Society’s opioid webinar series available on demand; five more coming later this summer

In response to growing concern for the opioid abuse epidemic and a likely prescribing-related continuing medical education (CME) mandate, the Wisconsin Medical Society’s Opioid Task Force has developed a webinar series aimed at improving opioid prescribing.

The first five webinars, which were held this spring, are now available on demand, and five more will be available later this summer. Each webinar has been approved for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™.

Presented by Wisconsin physicians who specialize in addiction and pain management, the webinars address the challenges clinicians face and present strategies, tools and resources to improve opioid prescribing practices.
