The MMA has added three more free lectures to its Pain, Opioids, and Addiction Series
. The series now includes 24 lectures.
The additions include:
• Addressing the Opioid Epidemic
• Chronic Pain Treatment Guidelines
• Substance Use Disorder: Referral and Treatment Options
The series is a collaboration between the MMA, the Steve Rummler Hope Network (SRHN), and the University of Minnesota Medical School. The goal is to bring medical education on the topic of opioids to medical students, residents, and practicing physicians. The lectures are recorded live at the University of Minnesota Medical School and made available for CME and MOC on the MMA website, with underwriting by the SRHN. The hope of the series is to create a medical curriculum on pain, opioids, and addiction, as it should be in a medical school setting: balanced, practical, evidence-based information free of commercial bias.
