PROVIDER EDUCATION

Co-Chair: Lesley Brooks, MD, North Colorado Health Alliance

Co-Chair: Joshua Blum, MD, Denver Health

The Provider Education Work Group focuses on issues relating to improving the education and training of health care professionals who prescribe, dispense, or otherwise provide care for those receiving prescription medications with the potential for misuse, abuse, or diversion.

The Provider Education Work Group’s goals for 2016-17 are to:

  • Increase access to provider education for Colorado prescribers;
  • Increase uptake of buprenorphine waiver training among prescribers across the state; and
  • Provide high quality provider education around all aspects of opioid prescribing including candidate selection, ongoing assessment and monitoring, opioid weaning, opioid use disorder diagnosis, and treatment.

The Provider Education Work Group meets every other month by teleconference. The current work group roster, most recent meeting minutes, and upcoming meeting schedule are available on the left-hand side of this page.
