What is SCOPE of Pain? SCOPE of Pain is designed to help you safely and effectively manage patients with pain, when appropriate, with opioid analgesics. The meeting includes essential clinical content on opioid prescribing as well as state-specific information. SCOPE of Pain Massachusetts is sponsored by Boston University School of Medicine with local partners the Northwestern District Attorney and the Worcester County District Attorney. National collaborators include the Council of Medical Specialty Societies and the Federation of State Medical Boards. Who is this training for? Physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, registered nurses, nurses, dentists, pharmacists and allied healthcare professionals. Why offer this training? The FDA has mandated manufacturers of extended release/longacting (ER/LA) opioid analgesics, as part of a comprehensive Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS), to make available comprehensive prescriber education in the safe use of these medications. This training is based on the FDA curriculum known as the Blueprint for Prescriber Education for Extended Release and Long-Acting Opioid (ER/LA) analgesics. Our curriculum covers all aspects of this blueprint and more to provide a comprehensive educational program.
