Opioid education for busy physicians: The Indiana State Medical Association’s engaging CME podcasts by leading clinicians put critical information about opioid prescribing and addiction at your fingertips. Choose from topics such as conversations with difficult patients, how the opioid crisis began and where it stands now, tapering patients off opioids and more. Completing all eight episodes in the ISMA Opioid Epidemic Podcast Series  counts toward Indiana’s requirement that Controlled Substances Registration (CSR) holders complete two hours of CME on opioid prescribing or abuse before obtaining or renewing a CSR. These podcasts are made possible by a Richard M. Fairbanks Foundation grant to the Indianapolis Medical Foundation.
