Description

This program provides prescribers of controlled substances with core knowledge required for safe and effective prescribing of scheduled drugs (opioids, benzodiazepines, weight loss medications, stimulants, anabolic steroids, others).

Dr. Miller discusses each of the five schedules reflected in the Controlled Substances Act. With a focus on Schedule II products, she presents an analysis of the pharmacodynamics by therapeutic category, prescribing considerations, ethical and financial implications, and use in special populations. Clinical case studies are incorporated to demonstrate clinical applications and utility.
