MEB-required opioid CME: Are you in compliance?

December is here, which means there are just a few weeks left before the deadline to complete an approved two-hour CME program on responsible opioid prescribing.

In 2016, the Wisconsin Medical Examining Board (MEB) approved a rule requiring physicians with a DEA number to complete two CME credits on its opioid prescribing guideline during the current CME cycle, as well as two credits in the next cycle—Jan. 1, 2018 to Dec. 31, 2019.

The Wisconsin Medical Society webinar “Wisconsin Medical Examining Board Opioid Prescribing Guideline,” fulfills this requirement and also has been approved for Maintenance of Certification Part II points. Presented by Society member Michael McNett, MD, a pain management physician at Aurora Health Care, the webinar comes very highly rated from the more than 2,000 physicians and other prescribers who have completed the program.

“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 Society CEO Bud Chumbley, MD. “I thought I knew a fair amount about opioids until I took this course. I highly recommend it.”
