Conference Level: ProficientOverview This presentation is a 2019 update. The most recent nationally vetted standards for safe opioid prescribing are presented based on the FDA Prescriber Education blueprint and developed by the Collaboration for REMS Education (CO*RE). Content discusses the four phases of safe prescribing standards: (1) pain assessment and screening tool use guidelines; (2) opioid trial definition and expected components including UDT, PPA & Informed Consent; (3) long term therapy, UDT and screening tool use frequencies, and (4) aspects associated with termination of care. Concepts of Red Flag behaviors and problem cases are reviewed. Pharmacology information includes CO*RE content on immediate release and long acting opioids, dose and drug family changes, equal analgesic drug conversions and abuse deterrent medications. Completion of this program and its evaluation meets many state-based requirements, including Boards of Nursing, for opioid prescriber education.
