Prescribing Controlled Drugs: Critical Issues and Common Pitfalls for Advanced Practice Nurses.

This course was developed by The Center for Professional Health at Vanderbilt to address the prescribing practices of nurse practitioners and physician assistants. This new course is guided by the current curriculum offered to physicians. The course will focus on nurse practitioners and physician assistants in their roles as prescribers in relation to different state regulatory rules that govern them. The course will provide current information on proper prescribing of controlled prescription drugs, identification of the drug seeking patient, diagnosis of substance abuse using SBIRT (screening, brief intervention and referral to treatment) and strategies to avoid risky prescribing behaviors.
