Prescription Drug Abuse Reduction Initiative

Project Term: 24 months; Ended 2017
Grant Amount: $25,000

This project developed a curriculum to present new and consistent information and to emphasize key points in the existing learning experience for residents (see training modules below). Presentations were completed in two programs and will continue to be available in future years. To assist the teaching faculty and residents, scholarships were provided to the Billings Clinic Internal Medicine Residency Program, the Family Medicine Residency of Western Montana Program, and the Montana Family Medicine Residency Program for teaching faculty and residents to attend the 2018 Montana Pain Conference: Evolving Science and Modalities. The conference was held in April 2018 at the University of Montana, and participants learned about best medical practices, shared experiences, and discussed challenges.

Training Modules:
An Ethical Approach to Current CDC Guidelines on Prescribing Opioids for Chronic Pain
Targets in the Pain Pathway to Manage Chronic Pain
