Prescribing and Dispensing | One of the cornerstones of safe opioid prescribing is education. The Perspectives in Care® program includes one 30-minute, in-office, educational presentation and access to ACCME® accredited CME. These instructional courses are intended to help healthcare providers better understand how to safely prescribe and dispense opioids.  Links redirect to a new site.

Patient-Reported Outcomes | The Perspectives in Care® patient-reported outcomes (ePRO) tool gathers important clinical insights from the patient, and reports them to the healthcare provider prior to each encounter. This saves precious time and gives the provider a more thorough understanding of both the risks and benefits of opioid therapy.
