This program provides participants with a comprehensive review of the Wisconsin Medical Examining Board’s (MEB) Opioid Prescribing Guidelines (released July 2016), including the rationale behind opioid guidelines in general, as well as that of each of the MEB’s specific guidelines. A prescriber practicing according to these guidelines will be providing the best evidence-based treatments for patients needing pain relief. In addition, thanks to a clear understanding of the guidelines, prescribers can be confident that their opioid prescribing protocols remain in compliance with state licensure statutes.
