This is a live webinar and enduring recorded course series consisting of six modules that will use a standardized, evidence-based opioid addiction prevention curriculum to train and inform New Jersey health care professionals on best practices in opioid prescribing and patient care in compliance with federal and state statutory and regulatory guidelines.

The modules are designed to educate New Jersey health care professionals with prescribing authority, including physicians, physician assistants, dentists, podiatrists, optometrists, certified nurse midwives, and advanced practice nurses, as well as licensed pharmacists, psychologists, social workers, professional counselors, marriage and family therapists, and registered nurses and athletic trainers. 

All participants who register for and complete a listed course will receive access to the New Jersey Opioid Medical Education Program Naloxone Distribution and Training Programs Guide. This comprehensive county-by-county guide, available in interactive and print formats for health care professional reference and patient education, includes pharmacies who dispense NARCAN® (naloxone hydrochloride) Nasal Spray and the recent FDA-approved generic naloxone hydrochloride nasal spray (utilizing standing orders, and via prescription). It also includes virtual trainings in the era of COVID–19 on how and when to use naloxone nasal spray.

All participants who register for and complete Module 6 will receive access to the New Jersey Opioid Medical Education Program COVID–19 Response Guide. This comprehensive guide, available in continually updated format for health care professional reference, includes changes to health care policies and practices with a focus on prescribing and telemedicine; harm reduction strategies for patients with opioid use disorder; considerations for special populations including individuals experiencing homelessness; supporting and protecting minority communities, with a focus on trauma-informed and culturally competent patient care; and guidance from specialty organizations.
