Prescription Drug Misuse & Abuse Initiative
AzCRH works with the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) and the UA College of Medicine, Office of Continuing Medical Education (CME) to create and market the CME Safe and Effective Opioid Prescribing While Managing Acute and Chronic Pain and other online modules, including an upcoming Prescription Drug 101 training for physicians. The Governor’s Office for Children, Faith and Families, the Arizona Criminal Justice Commission, ADHS, and the Arizona Substance Abuse Partnership launched the Arizona Prescription Drug Misuse and Abuse Initiative in 2012. AzCRH continues to develop training modules with funding from ADHS and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
