Society webinar fulfills MEB’s CME requirement

A webinar created to satisfy a new educational mandate from the Wisconsin Medical Examining Board (MEB) is now available on demand from the Wisconsin Medical Society. “Wisconsin Medical Examining Board Opioid Prescribing Guidelines” is a two-hour program that provides an in-depth overview of the guideline, while fulfilling the MEB’s requirement that physicians with a DEA number complete two continuing medical education (CME) credits on the guideline during the current CME cycle.

Presented by Society member Michael McNett, MD, a pain management physician at Aurora Health Care, the webinar has received excellent feedback.

“Doctor McNett presents the program in such a way that the rationale behind the guideline is clearly delineated with examples from actual practice, which makes understanding and following the guideline a ‘piece of cake’,” said Bud Chumbley, MD, chief medical advisor for Wisconsin Medical Society Holdings. “I thought I knew a fair amount about opioids until I took this course. I highly recommend it.”
