Members get first chance to earn CME through new ISMA Online mobile app
Working to meet Indiana’s new continuing education (CME) requirement for physicians licensed to prescribe controlled substances just got easier: ISMA members may now download the free ISMA Online app!

“We are proud and excited to offer the new ISMA Online app, developed through the generosity of the Richard M. Fairbanks Foundation,” said ISMA President Stacie Wenk, DO. “This technology is truly a game-changer in making mandatory CME on opioid prescribing and abuse free and accessible to all Indiana physicians. We look forward to providing other high-quality CME through the app in the future.”

The app is part of ISMA’s comprehensive program to educate physicians about the opioid crisis using innovative technology. It makes earning CME easy and convenient, with courses by ISMA members and other respected experts. ISMA Online and CME credits earned through the opioid-related content are free, thanks to a Richard M. Fairbanks Foundation grant.

ISMA members are welcome to download and use the app before its official April 1 launch. Just search for ISMA Online in your app store, download the app to a mobile device or desktop, and then register for one of the free CME courses. Completion of each video course or archived webinar counts toward the two hours of CME on opioid prescribing and abuse that Indiana physicians must complete to obtain or renew a Controlled Substances Registration (CSR). Completion of the eight-episode Opioid Epidemic Podcast Series also counts toward the CME requirement.  

ISMA welcomes feedback on the app and CME content. To submit comments, use the online form. Instructional videos are also available for Android and iOS

Each free CME video course covers an area of essential knowledge about opioid prescribing and abuse. Respected experts discuss topics such as managing conversations with difficult patients, opioid prescribing laws and opioid best practices in various clinical settings. 
Current episodes feature lively discussions with presenters of our Opioid Series video courses. Completion of all eight podcasts in this free series counts toward Indiana’s CME requirement for controlled-substances prescribers. Other episodes on topics of interest to Indiana physicians are planned!  
The app offers an easy way to complete the free CME webinars archived on ISMA’s website. “2019 Legal Update” is available now, and other archived opioid webinars will follow. Like our free video courses, these webinars count toward Indiana’s new CME requirement.
