Opioid Use and Pain Management CME Learning Modules

The Colorado Consortium for Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention’s Provider Education Work Group seeks to engage and educate a broad range of health care providers across Colorado. More specifically, the goal of the work group is to increase knowledge around pain management, safe opioid prescribing, and substance use disorder treatment by using a variety of educational tools.

On this page, you will find links to numerous training modules developed by the Consortium. The modules last up to an hour, can be completed at your convenience, and are eligible for Continuing Medical Education credits.

CoBank has been a generous sponsor for this work. The State of Colorado also provided funding through the Behavioral Health Recovery Act of 2021 (SB21-137).
