Opioid Education Modules
The ISQIC Coordinating Center is proud to present opioid education modules for three target audiences. The opioid education modules are a helpful resource for physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and others involved in surgical perioperative care. To create the modules, content experts were engaged and an extensive literature review was performed. These interactive modules provide the user with information as well as scenarios and activities to test their knowledge. We urge you to follow this link and take the next step in helping your patients better manage their pain and helping our community by reducing our reliance on opioids.
