CME events focus on resilience and wellness, opioid use in hospice care
We continue to have a full schedule of CME events planned for the next few months. On Tuesday, March 2, join ISMA and the Indiana Healthcare Executives Network for a “Sustainable Strategies to Support Resilience and Well-Being,” a virtual CME panel discussion on the importance of sustaining well-being for health care professionals in today’s environment. Our 2021 Opioid Series continues March 11, with Timothy J. Broach, MD, presenting the webinar, “Opioid Use in Hospice Care.” And, we’d like to hear from you about which topics we should cover in future CME offerings.

2021 Opioid Series
All physicians who hold a Controlled Substances Registration (CSR) in Indiana must complete two hours of CME on opioid prescribing and abuse by Oct. 31 in order to renew their CSR. Unlike CME from for-profit providers who might solicit you by email, each live webinar in our monthly 2021 Opioid Series is FREE for ISMA members and counts toward fulfilling the new CME mandate.
