SCOPE of Pain is a series of continuing medical education/continuing nursing education activities designed to help you safely and effectively manage patients with acute and/or chronic pain, when appropriate, with opioid analgesics. Our program consists of:
The FDA has mandated manufacturers of opioid analgesics, as part of a comprehensive Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS), to make available comprehensive prescriber education in the safe use of these medications based on the FDA curriculum known as the Opioid Analgesic REMS Education Blueprint for Health Care Providers Involved in the Treatment and Monitoring of Patients with Pain (PDF). Our curriculum covers all aspects of this blueprint and more to provide a comprehensive educational program.
Physicians, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, physician assistants, nurses, dentists, pharmacists, and allied health professionals whose practices manage acute and chronic pain
Providers whose practices prescribe opioid analgesics to treat pain are in a key position to balance the benefits and risks of opioid therapy. However, providers struggle with the need to assist their patients with adequate management of chronic pain while confronting the risks associated with opioid prescribing. The SCOPE of Pain educational program looks to address that need with strategies for multidisciplinary, inter-professional care addressed in its curriculum.
