Opioid Education Series


The Cook County Department of Public Health (ICCDP) requested proposals for educational programming in health-system and community pharmacy to address the national opioid crisis on the state level.  This initiative is funded through a federal grant.  The Illinois Council of Health-System Pharmacists (ICHP) Educational Affairs Division created an Opioid Task Force to submit a proposal and was awarded the grant.  The Task Force created the Opioid Crisis Education Series encompassing two grant areas: CDC Opioid Data to Action (live educational programming) and the PMPNow Initiative (home study programming). This series addresses four specific education goals:

1. PMPnow
2. Stigma Reduction
3. CDC Safe Prescribing Guidelines
4. Naloxone Use

The programming listed below from this series is available free to Illinois pharmacists and pharmacy technicians until August 31, 2022 or until grant funds have been dispersed, whichever is first.

In order to access the programs and claim CPE credit, you will need to create a free account on CESally.com. 
See our step by step instructions.

All pending programming subject to change.
