[MMA News Now, Jan. 16, 2014]
A free webinar that offers a new protocol for the care and treatment of patients in acute pain will take place Feb. 10 from noon to 1 p.m. The MMA has partnered with the Institute for Clinical Systems Improvement (ICSI) to develop an evidence-based protocol for prescribing opioids for patients with acute pain.
The webinar will feature a panel of clinicians, including MMA Board Chair Dave Thorson, M.D., discussing the new guidelines. It will be an interactive session with the panel so attendees should be prepared with questions. The new protocol is expected to be available online by the end of January.

for the webinar. The registration deadline is Feb. 5.
