TMA helps doctors meet state medical boards’ requirements of two (2) CME hours of prescribing training. In this proprietary, accredited course, "Appropriate Prescribing in Tennessee: 2021-2022," 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 2021-2022: We have a brand new video featuring the Tennessee Medical Foundation's Medical Director Michael Baron, MD. We also have new course materials for participants to download and use while following along with the course. Some of the new topics include: updated carfentanil information, updated MME and CSMD statistics, new TN-PSQ data, and new information regarding pregnant women.

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.
