Description

The Illinois General Assembly passed a law that requires every CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE LICENSE HOLDER is required to take three hours of CE on safe opioid prescribing in order to renew a controlled substance license. This training is required in order to renew your controlled substance license in 2020. This course may be counted towards the current CE requirements and will count towards the four-hour limit on self-directed CE courses for Illinois Optometrists.
THIS CE REQUIREMENT WILL BE REQUIRED AT EACH RENEWAL PERIOD - NOT JUST IN 2020.

Attention Recent Grads: Update on CE Requirements
If you hold a controlled substance license, you must comply with the three-hour opioid requirement, even if this is your first renewal.

While I understand the MOA of opiates as well as I did when I first had this lecture my 2nd year at ICO, I do not feel that this lecture improved my clinical ability to prescribe opiates. In the future, I would hope the lectures offered would be more practical for practicing physicians. I believe the intended goal of having optometrists take more opiate related CE is to better equip us to be able to safely and accurately prescribe opiates. Dosage would be beneficial to know and very little was mentioned regarding that. Yes, I can figure dosage out through other sources, but why is that not touched on in a 3 hour lecture? I was expecting more than a carry over from a lecture given to 2nd year optometry students that have never even sat in front of a patient before. The lecture is fair for a student, but I would judge it as poor CE due to its impracticality.

Very timely and useful I think given the present state of affairs.

was unaware all the slides were repeated larger at end of lecture... would have been better to print all powerpoint slides first, but I was on an airplane-- also not able to refer back to slides while taking the test. that made it a legitimate test!

Great!
Dr Naomi Sakoda (12 Feb 2020)
I found the video lecture difficult to follow and the outline more informative. I also found the coughing/choking of the presenter most annoying. It would have been advisable to mute the microphone then.

I would have liked to know which question i got wrong.
