According to NC DHHS and the CDC, North Carolina has experienced a 350% increase in drug overdose deaths since 1999 and was one of 19 states that saw statistically significant increase in drug overdose death rates from 2014 to 2015. Prescribing practices for opioids must change in order to address this epidemic.

Wake AHEC and the North Carolina Medical Board have partnered together to develop a webinar and panel sessions addressing the issue of prescription opioids. This blended learning activity will provide clinicians with best practices for effectively and appropriately treating pain, and ultimately, improving patient outcomes.
