The Steve Rummler Hope Foundation is providing educational opportunities (including CME) on pain management, addiction, and the responsible prescribing of pain medications for medical students, practicing physicians and other prescribers.
In partnership with the Minnesota Medical Association and the University of Minnesota Medical School, the Foundation has taken action to ensure that physicians and other prescribers have access to the information they need in order to fulfill the role they must play in bringing an end to our epidemic of addiction and overdose deaths.
We are presenting a series of lectures on pain management and addiction to the medical students at the University of Minnesota. These lectures are being filmed and then distributed on the Minnesota Medical Association website as free, enduring Continuing Medical Education (CME) … available to practicing physicians and other prescribers across the country. The lectures provide education on the responsible use of opioids, and on alternative methods to treat pain … education that is still lacking in most medical schools across the country.
You can view these lectures by clicking here.
We are also providing training for prescribers in the safe and appropriate use of naloxone, the benign, life-saving drug, which can counteract the effects of an opioid overdose within minutes. Legislation in Minnesota and elsewhere has made this drug more readily available. More information on naloxone training.
Steve’s Law (MN 911 Good Samaritan/Naloxone legislation) provides for 3rd party prescribing of naloxone. Here is the information that prescribers need to know.
