APMA’s continuing medical education offerings are more accessible than ever. The latest on-demand CECH opportunity on the APMA Online Learning Center is an opioid/pain management-focused course, “Postoperative Opioid Prescribing Practice in Foot and Ankle Surgery,” with Brandon Brooks, DPM, MPH, and Bradley Brooks, DO (psychiatrist and addictionologist).
The program is based on Dr. Brooks’ research article by the same title, published in JAPMA in March 2021. This study is the largest cross-sectional study to-date conducted on the postoperative opioid prescribing practices of podiatrists.
The program’s learning objectives are:
“This online CME allows you to discover how your postoperative opioid prescribing habits compare to podiatrists across the nation,” Dr. Brooks said. “As the opioid epidemic rages on, podiatrists are asking themselves how they can contribute to its resolution. With few national guidelines for acute pain, understanding how your prescribing practice stacks up to the national average is key.”
