Prescribing

Proper Prescribing (RX-21)

Back

This course goes beyond sound prescribing practices, examining the personal and professional reasons why clinicians fail to prescribe properly. The curriculum covers common misconceptions about opioids, assessment of patients for misuse potential, setting prescribing-related boundaries, team-based pain management approaches, and compliance with documentation, laws, and rules.

PBI is committed to providing interactive, individualized, impactful education. To facilitate this, our Proper Prescribing course size is limited to 15 participants. 

An intensive pre-course component personalizes the course content to be state and profession-specific. Building on insights into why clinicians prescribe inappropriately, participants develop a Personalized Protection Plan©. This plan is designed to help them maintain their newfound knowledge base and prevent prescribing-related lapses.

*This course meets training requirements for the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) MATE Act.
