Prescriber Education

Implement education programs for prescribers on the risks of overprescribing, alternatives to opioids for acute pain, and recognizing the signs of addiction.

Educating prescribers on the risks of overprescribing and alternatives to opioid medications for pain management can lead to fewer or lower dose opioid prescriptions, which, in turn, lessens a patient’s risks for addiction. Prescriber education is often conducted through in-person or online continuing medical education courses, or as part of the requirements for initial licensure or renewal of a professional license.
