Preventing Prescription Drug Abuse
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), opioid overdoses claim the lives of 91 Americans every day and roughly 40% of those deaths involve prescription opioids. To address this crisis, we launched the first self-paced online course in 2012 to retrain healthcare providers on current state and federal guidelines for non-cancer chronic pain management. Our goal is to combat the growing opioid epidemic while providing the best care to patients. We partner with the Colorado Consortium for Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention to continue to train providers and prescribers — including physicians, pharmacists, veterinarians, nurses, and dentists — how to prevent opioid abuse and misuse.
