This is an enduring course series consisting of three modules that will use a standardized, evidence-based opioid addiction prevention curriculum to train and inform New Jersey dentists, dental specialists, and dental professionals on best practices in opioid prescribing, pain management strategies, and referral to medication-assisted treatment (MAT) in compliance with federal and state statutory and regulatory guidelines.

All participants who register for and complete a listed course will receive access to the Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine—NJ CARES—New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs Naloxone Distribution and Training Programs Guide, a special research project developed in Spring 2020 as part of the New Jersey Opioid Medical Education Program. 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.
