TFQPH Awarded Opioid Abatement Council Community Grant


NASHVILLE, TENN - The Tennessee Medical Association's (TMA) 501c3 organization, the Tennessee Foundation for Quality Patient Healthcare (TFQPH), is a recipient of an Opioid Abatement Council (OAC) Community Grant. With this funding, a new education course will be created for Tennessee prescribers. 

At the March 18, 2024 meeting of the OAC, TFQPH was awarded a three-year grant for $1,508,906. TFQPH is among several grant recipients who share the same goal of battling opioid disorders throughout Tennessee.

TMA continues to keep prescriber education and the opioid crisis in Tennessee as a top priority. With this grant, TFQPH and TMA will use the Ingram Institute Lab model to train a Task Force in leadership change management combined with instructional systems designed to create a new prescriber course for the state.

This program will:

  • meet the state’s licensure board’s requirements for two hours of prescriber education
  • be created by those on the front lines of this epidemic providing care for Tennesseans, and 
  • be provided at no charge for Tennessee prescribers
