Pain Management/Prescribing Opioids

Featured Online CME Courses – FREE

The Massachusetts Medical Society has long been a leader in providing continuing medical education about critical public health issues, including pain management.

In an effort to remove as many barriers as possible to prescriber education, MMS online CME/CPD activities on pain management and opioid prescribing are available to all prescribers — for free — until further notice. This includes not only our current suite of courses, but those due to be released in upcoming months.

We hope that you will incorporate risk management strategies into your practice to help reduce the number of opioids prescribed in the Commonwealth, and related opioid abuse, addiction and deaths.
