Required opioid CME: Are you in compliance?

Fall is here, which means that along with pumpkin spice everything, if you haven’t already completed an approved two-hour CME program on responsible opioid prescribing, it’s time to get it done.

The Wisconsin Medical Examining Board (MEB) approved a rule in 2016 requiring physicians with a DEA number to complete two CME credits on its opioid prescribing guideline during the current CME cycle, which ends Dec. 31, 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 1,500 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 Bud Chumbley, MD, chief medical advisor for Wisconsin Medical Society Holdings Corporation. “I thought I knew a fair amount about opioids until I took this course. I highly recommend it.”
