SCOPE of Pain is a series of continuing medical education/continuing nursing education activities designed to help you safely and effectively manage patients with acute and/or chronic pain, when appropriate, with opioid analgesics. This Boston University School of Medicine program consists of:
- A 2-module cased-based online activity
- Live conferences held around the US
- Resources for use institutionally
- Supplemental, focused content to extend the knowledge built through the core curriculum
The FDA has mandated manufacturers of opioid analgesics, as part of a comprehensive Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS), to make available comprehensive prescriber education in the safe use of these medications based on the FDA curriculum known as the Opioid Analgesic REMS Education Blueprint for Health Care Providers Involved in the Treatment and Monitoring of Patients with Pain (PDF). Our curriculum covers all aspects of this blueprint and more to provide a comprehensive educational program.
