DEA Training Requirement:
WHERE: Free, online, asynchronous training is available from the federally funded Providers Clinical Support System. The AAFP offers FREE training that fulfills the requirement and is free to members. The American Medical Association also provides training resources, though not all are free.
Pain Management Education:
Project ECHO is an engaging group education forum for practicing healthcare providers. This 8 week (weekly on Thursday at noon Begins May 18, 2023) Pain Management ECHO is being offered for New England providers and repeats a curriculum that was offered in Maine in December-January. Attendance at every session is encouraged but not required. Participants are asked to prepare and present one case during the course. Many providers in Maine struggle feeling comfortable caring for patients with long-term chronic pain and this is an effective tool to increase knowledge and self-efficacy. Information & Registration
