WEBINAR 10: How to Build a Controlled Substance Review Committee in Your Primary Care Clinic: Why? Who? How?

Meeting Description:

 This is the 10th in a series of 12 monthly webinars on medication assisted treatments (MAT) in primary care settings created by the California Society of Addiction Medicine with the support of a grant from the California Health Care Foundation. No Pharma money was used in creating this series.

Is your primary care clinic struggling to navigate cultural changes around chronic pain and opioid management? Why not look into creating an internal peer-review committee for complex pain cases? If done right, it can improve the experience of both patients and providers. This webinar will use a case-based format to review the basic structure and composition of such a committee, the operations, and the benefits to its use. 

Learning Objectives - 
After attending this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Leave with ideas on how to design and implement a controlled substance review committee in your clinic
  • Understand two ways a controlled substance review committee interacts with primary providers
  • Reflect on what types of complex cases could be referred to a review committee
