REMS Playbook for Opioid Prescribing: Online Interactive Learning Experience American Academy of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation
Opioid misuse and abuse has emerged as a major public health problem. Improper use of any opioid can result in serious side effects including overdose and death, and this risk can be greater with ER/LA opioid analgesics. It is critical that the appropriate prescribing practices and patient education is reinforced. This engaging online activity consists of 6 learning modules comprised of 4 dynamic video episodes with leading pain specialists and 2 interactive quizzes. Each are designed to provide physicians with an in-depth review of essential content that supports best practices for the safe and effective prescribing of extended-release (ER)/long-acting (LA) opioids. The curriculum is based on the Food and Drug Administration Blueprint for Prescriber Education for Extended-Release and Long-Acting Opioid Analgesics.
