E-learning educates medical students on safely prescribing opioids for chronic pain

However, a safe opioid prescribing e-learning program effectively educates graduate students on safely prescribing opioids for chronic pain and is effective regardless of year in training, according to research from the University of California, Irvine.

Will Novey, Shalini Shah, Donald Tan, Maylin Martinez, Abhinav Grover, Bindu Swaroop, and Emilie Chow received a Resident/Fellow Travel Award for their abstract of the study, “Successful Implementation of a Novel E-learning Opioid Curriculum for Graduate Medical Education Housestaff: The Early Phase Outcome of an Internal Medicine Residency Curriculum E-Learning Project,” which will be presented on Thursday, November 14, 2019, during the 18th Annual Pain Medicine Meeting in New Orleans, LA.

Novey and colleagues created an e-learning curriculum based on a thorough review of opioid-prescribing literature and the 2016 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Guideline for Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain and offered it to residents through the University of California’s online learning management system.
