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: 2023-2024," 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.
Updates includes: Naloxone for opioid prescriptions, Part 2 programs (buprenorphine) reporting to the CSMD and prescribing buprenorphine via telemedicine. The course features Michael Baron, MD, MPH, DFASAM, medical director of the Tennessee Medical Foundation and an expert on proper pain management.
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.
