Offered in collaboration with the Council of Medical Specialty Societies (CMSS) and the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB), this program addresses the FDA mandate to manufacturers of extended release/long-acting (ER/LA) opioid analgesics, by providing comprehensive prescriber education in the safe use of these medications. It also addresses many key elements of the physician education component of the Obama Administration's prescription drug abuse prevention plan on prescriber education released in April 2011. This program is funded by an unrestricted educational grant awarded by the manufacturers of ER/LA opioid analgesics, known as the REMS Program Companies (RPC).
This educational activity is supported by an independent educational grant from the Extended-Release/Long-Acting Opioid Analgesic REMS Program Companies. Please see http://ce.er-la-opioidrems.com/IwgCEUI/rems/pdf/List_of_RPC_Companies.pdf for a listing of REMS Program Companies. This activity is intended to be fully compliant with the Extended-Release/Long-Acting Opioid Analgesics REMS education requirements issued by the US Food & Drug Administration.
These activities were planned in collaboration with the Council of Medical Specialty Societies and the Federation of State Medical Boards.
