Course Overview

The CO*RE/ASAM Pain Management and Opioids: Balancing Risks and Benefits curriculum is newly updated to reflect the latest information in this vital area of healthcare. The thoroughly revised curriculum addresses: the nature and pathophysiology of pain; assessing patients in pain; creating a pain treatment plan; initiating opioid therapy; managing patients on opioid analgesics; educating patients and caregivers; and understanding opioid use disorder. This program meets many states requirements for opioid education and is fully compliant education requirement, issued by FDA. 

Participants of the 40-hour program may attend a live course, live webinar or fulfill the requirement online. Participants who have already completed the course through ASAM may submit that CME certificate to fulfill this activity of the 40-Hour Program.

Note: The CO*RE/ASAM Pain Management and Opioids: Balancing Risks and Benefits has been updated several times (previously known as REMS, Safe Opioid Prescribing, etc.).
