Opioid 411, drip.vet’s online course on controlled substances, has been approved to fulfill legal requirements in all 18 states that mandate ongoing opioid continuing education for veterinarians’ license renewals.
“Veterinarians are a part of the solution to the opioid crisis,” according to drip.vet’s Lance Roasa, DVM. “This course provides critical information practicing veterinarians need to reduce harm and meet their legal requirements.”
In states where the veterinary medical association (VMA) teams with drip.vet, Opioid 411 is available at a discount of up to 50 percent off the regular price. Drip.vet is reaching out to VMAs to make the discount available as widely as possible to veterinarians in need of this continuing education (CE). The Texas Veterinary Medical Association recently partnered with drip.vet, making the discount available to its members.
Opioid 411 is a RACE-approved CE course that covers opioid prescribing by veterinarians in precise detail. The course provides students with a broad range of expert-level knowledge on subjects including The Opioid Crisis in America, DEA Laws and Regulations, Identifying and Stopping Misuse, Opioids in Practice, and Best Practices. More information about the course is available here.
Eighteen states require such CE for veterinary license renewal: Arizona, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Maine, New Jersey, New York, North and South Carolina, Maryland, Michigan, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas and Wyoming. Veterinary medicine boards in all 18 states have approved drip.vet’s Opioid 411 to fulfill their legal mandates. The course is available to licensees in all states, but these 18 states legally mandate controlled-substance CE.
Opioid 411 is delivered in 1- , 2- and 3-hour varieties to suit the requirements of each state, and may be taken online at the learner’s own pace or via a live webinar.
“Our course gives veterinarians in these states a convenient way to fulfill the legal mandate, and at the same time, earn their CE credits. We also deliver other RACE-approved courses in addition to Opioid 411,” said Drew Olson, DVM, also of drip.vet.
