Practice Advisor Modules
Several new Practice Advisor modules have been released on a variety of topics:

  • Opioid Risk Management helps to assess your practice’s ability to successfully develop a treatment plan for chronic pain and track and monitor opioid use if prescribed.
  • Managing Diabetes Mellitus offers resources for clinicians to help identify key practice level interventions to optimize the delivery of care to patients with diabetes, motivate patients with diabetes to improve their self-management skills, and help practices deliver optimal diabetes care.
  • Diagnosis and Initial Management of Hypertension addresses three primary management questions: the diagnosis of hypertension, blood pressure targets for patients, and options for the initial treatment of hypertension.
  • Management of Uncontrolled Hypertension delves deeper into the management of patients whose blood pressure is unable to be controlled through initial therapies.

Successful completion of Practice Advisor activities enables the participant to earn 20 CME and MOC Practice Assessment points.

This module and others are available now for ACP Practice Advisor® users at PracticeAdvisor.org/Modules.
