Med-Challenger’s State Mandated CME course empowers and educates health care providers with new content on Prescribing Controlled Substances and Recognizing Victims of Human Trafficking.
(PRUnderground) August 6th, 2020
Med-Challenger is excited to announce the addition of two highly relevant new topics to our State Required CME course: Prescribing Controlled Substances and Recognizing Victims of Human Trafficking in the Pediatric Emergency Department.
Written by Gerard Kiernan, MD, FHM, FAAFP, Prescribing Controlled Substances addresses the full spectrum of information that practicing family physicians, emergency physicians, internists, and hospitalists need as our country battles the opioid crisis. Course materials range from identification of risk factors, to strengths and weaknesses of the prescription drug monitoring program through and including practical tools for treatment plan formulation. This course is designed to address information essential to all of today’s practicing physicians.
Recognizing Victims of Human Trafficking focuses on tools of particular efficacy for Pediatricians, Pediatric Emergency Physicians, Nurses, PAs, and any first responders who interact with young patients. In addition to providing context and background information on this very important topic, this course covers suspicious indicators that may suggest a patient may be involved in human trafficking, describes the multifaceted health issues and complicated social challenges faced by patients involved in human trafficking, and identifies access services that can help patients involved in human trafficking and secure their safety. Authored by Andrea C. Eberly, MD, M.S., FAAEM, in today’s world where clinicians are often gatekeepers of safety, this is critical topical information.
Says Med-Challenger’s Managing Content Editor Elizabeth Anderson, “I’m always proud of the quality of our learning materials but am especially so when the topics we are addressing help our front line healthcare providers with such pressing problems.”
Med-Challenger’s unique subscription offer allows Physicians (MDs and DOs), Nurse Practitioners (NPs), Registered Nurses (RNs), Physician Assistants (PAs), and other clinicians working in an Emergency Medicine, Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Pediatric Emergency Medicine, Obstetrics and Gynecology, or Urgent Care to maintain a constantly updated review of practice education and CME available 24/7.
The course also offers up to 100 AMA PRA Category 1 CME credit(s)TM.
