SCOPE of Pain is a three-part educational program that will help you safely and competently manage your patients with chronic pain. Through the case of Mary Williams, a 42 year old with painful diabetic neuropathy and chronic low back pain, you'll learn how to: 1) decide on appropriateness of opioid analgesics; 2) assess for opioid misuse risk; 3) counsel patients about opioid safety, risks and benefits; 4) competently monitor patients prescribed opioids for benefit and harm; 5) make decisions on continuing or discontinuing opioid analgesics; 6) safely discontinue opioids when there is too little benefit or too much risk and harm. Offered in collaboration with the Council of Medical Specialty Societies (CMSS) and the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB), this program addresses the FDA mandate to manufacturers of extended release/long-acting (ER/LA) opioid analgesics, by providing comprehensive prescriber education in the safe use of these medications.
This program is funded by an independent educational grant awarded by the manufacturers of extended-release (ER) and long-acting (LA) opioid analgesics, collectively known as the Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) Program Companies, or RPC. This activity is intended to be fully-compliant with the ER/LA Opioid Analgesic REMS education requirements issued by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA).
