MEB-Approved Opioid Prescribing Series

The Wisconsin Medical Examining Board (MEB) approved a rule requiring physicians with a DEA number to complete two CME credits on its Opioid Prescribing Guideline during the 2018-2019 CME cycle. To help physicians comply with this rule, the Wisconsin Medical Society developed a series of on-demand webinars.

Presented by Wisconsin physicians who specialize in addiction and pain management, the webinars listed below are designed to address the challenges faced by physicians and other prescribers and to improve opioid prescribing practices without compromising the quality of patient care.

Each webinar has been approved by the MEB. All have been approved for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ and maintenance of Certification Part II points for certain specialties.

Biennium dates for continuing education:  1/1/2020 to 12/31/2021
Renewal deadline: 10/31/2021
