Proper Prescribing Training
TMA helps doctors meet state medical boards’ requirements of two (2) CME hours of prescribing training with two options to get proper prescribing training – in person or online.
In the proprietary, accredited course, "Appropriate Prescribing in Tennessee – 2019/2020 Edition," physicians and other healthcare professionals engage in a comprehensive review of new definitions, state laws and other regulatory changes affecting pain management.
This program will help healthcare clinicians understand and adhere to prescribing guidelines to keep patients safe and protect themselves from inadvertently contributing to the exploding prescription drug abuse epidemic. Physicians will learn about the proper use and responsible management of pain clinics and the importance of educating patients on the pain medication prescribed.
New for 2019-2020: For the first time in eight years, TMA was able to deregulate restrictions on opioid prescriptions by amending state laws. The changes allow legitimate pain patients to receive medically necessary prescriptions and maintain the doctor-patient relationship without over regulation.
NOTE: While approximately 25% of this program is Tennessee-specific, physicians from other states will also benefit from this program. ** Completion of this course satisfies the state medical boards' requirement of 2 CME hours in prescribing.
