Opioid Management Online Training Modules

State Fund has developed two new online training modules to assist our medical provider network in the treatment of pain. The use of opioids to treat pain, especially in workers’ compensation cases, has been shown to delay an injured worker’s return to work. Evidence-based research supports State Fund’s effort to set guidelines for its medical provider community to prescribe the lowest opioid dose and the shortest duration that is effective, which is covered in these modules.

State Fund has worked with the University of California, Berkeley's Center for Occupational and Environmental Health to provide one hour of free CME credit for each module.

NOTE: A password is required to access the modules. All MPNs should have received the password in the mail. If you need help, please email: Mark.R.Stephens@comcast.net.
