CME Outfitters, along with physician experts Steven P. Stanos, and Anthony J. Lembo welcome registration for the upcoming Live and On Demand Program on Opioid-Induced Constipation

CME Outfitters (CMEO), a leading accredited provider in continuing medical education, announces its upcoming Live and On Demand activity: Insights Into the Assessment, Prevention, and Management of Opioid Induced Constipation. The live program will launch on Thursday, June 25th at 12:00pm ET. Faculty experts Steven P. Stanos, Jr., DO, and Anthony J. Lembo, MD will lead an interactive one-hour discussion that will narrow gaps in the management of OIC by highlighting how to implement an assessment and diagnosis of OIC, assess and select a treatment plan to include new and emerging agents, and create a strategy to proactively engage patients in conversations regarding bowel management. Physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, nurses, and other health care professionals who manage patients with opioid-induced constipation are encouraged to register.

CMEO’s Live and On Demand format is an online and mobile 90-minute, live, panel discussion that offers cutting-edge insights from national experts. This live interactive broadcast is a key differentiator and unique to CMEO online activities. Clinicians will have the opportunity to engage in real time with faculty and with peers through Q&A and Twitter. Included in the 90-minute activity is a special 30-minute Q&A segment designed to provide learners time to ask additional questions, interact with the experts, and share challenges via phone, by using the Q&A widget on the web interface, email, or Twitter.

At the end of this activity, participants should be able to:

  •     Create and employ a strategy to adequately identify and diagnose opioid-induced constipation (OIC) in patients who utilize opioids.
  •     Assess and select treatment options for patients with opioid-induced constipation (OIC).
  •     Execute a communication plan by routinely asking patients about their bowel patterns while taking opioids in order to identify, prevent, and monitor opioid-induced constipation (OIC).
