Grant funding available for opioid prescriber education

Applications are due Feb. 10, with the AOA set to award approximately 10 grants.

The AOA is offering approximately 10 grants of up to $5,000 to organizations who plan to offer continuing medical education this year on proper prescribing of extended-release and long-acting (ER/LA) opioid analgesics. Applications are due on Feb. 10, 2017.

To apply, organizations must be accredited CME sponsors who work with health care professionals who provide direct patient care. The organizations selected for grant funding will also be provided with a trained speaker, marketing materials and learner assessment forms. To learn more and apply, read the Call for 2017 CO*RE REMS Program Sponsors.

Not a CME sponsor? If you’re a physician who prescribes opioids for pain management and would like to attend CME on ER/LA analgesics, please contact your state association or specialty college to encourage them to apply for grant funding.
