Participants who attended had this to say:

CORE REMS: Opioid Prescribing: Safe Practice, Changing Lives
The Academy received a block grant from the American Osteopathic Association to offer this session for surgeons who prescribe long term opioids. The “ER/LA Opioid REMS” program was developed by the Collaborative for REMS Education (CO*RE). The American Osteopathic Association (AOA) is a CO*RE partner. Over 50 orthopedic surgeons attended this session and will be added to the federal registry for having attended.
