Posted 4 months ago by Sequoyah Brown

Greetings Colleagues!

National Council of State Boards of Nursing Releases an Opioid Toolkit In an effort to prevent over-prescribing of opioids, NCSBN has created a toolkit for practitioners.

The Opioid Toolkit includes the following:

  • Continuing Education materials from organizations like the American Society of Addiction Medicine and the National Institute on Drug Abuse.
  • Guidelines for Prescribing Opioids from the CDC and Federation of State Medical Boards.
  • Links to toolkits on Overdose Prevention

NCSBN also continues to offer free continuing education courses, brochures, posters, and a brief video – as part of its Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Initiative.
