Need continuing medical education to satisfy the North Carolina controlled substances CME requirement?

NCMB worked with partners to create three new one-hour CME modules that address responsible opioid prescribing basics, recognizing and responding to signs of substance misuse and best practices in chronic pain management. The online modules are the result of a collaboration between NCMB, faculty with the UNC School of Medicine and Wake Area Health Education Center (Wake AHEC).

The modules are designed to meet North Carolina's CME requirement for controlled substances prescribers. There is a $20 registration fee for each one hour course.

Access the three modules:

Controlled Substance Prescribing Module 1: Prescribing Controlled Substances in North Carolina

Controlled Substance Prescribing Module 2: Recognizing Signs of Substance Misuse

Controlled Substance Prescribing Module 3: Best Practices in Chronic Pain Management and Safe Opioid Prescribing
