Prescribing Controlled Drugs – CPEP LIVE – Live, Interactive Video Education

CPEP, in collaboration with the Vanderbilt Center for Professional Health, is offering Vanderbilt’s highly regarded Prescribing Controlled Drugs: Critical Issues and Common Pitfalls© course. This three-day course is designed to teach appropriate prescribing practices, facilitate understanding of personal motivations in the patient encounter as understood within the framework of family systems theory, discuss personal responsibilities with patients, and cultivate new skills in substance abuse identification.

Participants have the opportunity to practice their new skills with simulated patients and receive individualized coaching from the faculty. The course is taught by a multi-disciplinary team with expertise in prescribing controlled substances and identifying substance use disorders. The faculty include a physician, a psychologist, and a substance abuse counselor/family educator. The course may be particularly helpful to professionals who wish to improve their comfort level and skills managing patients on chronic controlled substances (e.g. opioids, benzodiazepines, stimulants) and to professionals who have been cited for inappropriate prescribing, such as prescribing large quantities, prescribing for non-patients (e.g. family members or friends), or prescribing to patients with known histories of substance abuse.
