Opioid education
facts

Our dedicated clinical learning team develops custom, accredited educational activities the healthcare community needs on timely topics, such as the opioid epidemic. Through our wide network of subject matter experts, we understand what it means to work on the front lines of healthcare and carefully merge academic expertise with sensitive, compassionate care in each course. 
The portfolio consists of a combination of existing and newly developed courses that cover topics from pain management and ethics to medication nonadherence. Nurses who complete each course earn continuing education credits they can apply toward state license renewal. And the numbers speak for themselves. The campaign is making an impact on education.
