This conference satisfies the NH Board of Medicine’s biennial opioid prescribing competency requirement of at least 3 contact hours on opioid prescribing for the management or treatment of pain, or for the treatment of opioid use disorders.  Last year’s event sold out quickly so please register now.

The target audience for this conference includes physicians, dentists, podiatrists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, other prescribers, nurses, social workers, allied health professionals, pharmacists, and social service agencies since only with a coordinated effort by these stakeholders will we solve this problem.

7 CE or CME credits have been requested for this educational event.  The Catholic Medical Center is accredited by the New Hampshire Medical Society Council on Education to sponsor continuing medical education for physicians.  Catholic Medical Center is also an approved provider of continuing nursing education by the Northeast Multi State Division, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Association Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.

This year’s event will be in the same venue as last year: the Courtyard Marriott Nashua/Merrimack just off of Rte 3 at exit 8. Conference registration is just $75, including light breakfast and buffet lunch
