New Pain Rules Require CE

Graphic from The Challenge of Pain conference brochure. Curious about the new continuing education rules for pain?

  • Unsure if you are exempt from seeking a mandatory pain consultation?
  • Need clarification regarding "shall" versus "should"?

The Washington State legislature recently passed new rules designed to keep patients safe and to provide best practices in pain management for practitioners who prescribe opioids. A key component of the rules is to encourage practitioners to become better educated in the safe and effective use of these drugs. Find out about the new rules and continuing education requirements by watching our video series The Challenge of Pain - 2012.
