For providers who are interested in furthering their knowledge about the opioid epidemic, the following resources offer an abundance of educational information targeted to help enhance current practices and tackle this nationwide epidemic. 

Opioids Training Modules

The CDC launched two new opioid trainings that support providers in safer prescribing of opioids for chronic pain. The modules are part of a series of interactive online trainings that feature recommendations from the CDC Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain, clinical scenarios, tools and resource libraries to enhance learning. The modules offer free continuing education.

View additional modules in the series on the CDC Interactive Training Series webpage.

Reducing Opioid Misuse Letter  

CMS, through the MACs, recently mailed letters to all Medicare fee-for-service providers about our work to reduce opioid misuse by people with Medicare, including:

  • Providing guidance on co-prescribing Naloxone
  • Implementing new Medicare Part D opioid policies
  • Promoting a range of safe and effective pain treatments

We are committed to exploring and offering viable options to address the opioid crisis, sharing information on the data we collect with other agencies and organizations, and protecting our beneficiaries and communities affected by the crisis. Together, we can make progress in addressing many aspects of the opioid epidemic.
