Mobile Learning for health professionals
Convenient, no-cost continuing education for health professionals serving patients with acute and chronic pain
Busy doctors, nurses and pharmacists must keep up with changing requirements for prescribing and managing opioid medications, including the recommended guidelines and best practices for treatment of acute and chronic pain.
ONE Tennessee partners with health professional associations, including the Tennessee Medical Association, Tennessee Pharmacists Association, Tennessee Nurses Association and Tennessee Hospital Association, to provide information about appropriate prescribing of prescription opioid painkillers and alternative treatments that relieve pain, improve patient function and reduce the risk of addiction, overdose and death.
Clinicians can easily access information via a mobile application administered by Vanderbilt University Medical Center’s Center for Advancing Mobile Health Learning (CAMHL, which delivers information and a test question daily over the course of a month. By successfully completing the curriculum and demonstrating understanding through accurate answers to each of the 20 test questions, clinicians are eligible to earn continuing professional education credits, at no cost.
Registration for courses will re-open in January 2021.
