09/23/2019 7:37 AM | Kara Henrys (Administrator)

Space is Limited - Don't Miss this CE Event!

MVMA members specifically requested more information on this topic and we designed a full day of continuing education especially for you!

Join us for 6 hours of CE to address the use of opioids and new regulations, as well as delegation and telehealth in veterinary practice in Michigan on Tuesday, Nov. 12, 2019, located at 4039 Legacy Pkwy, Lansing, MI 48911.

The epidemic of opioid abuse is affecting medical and health professionals such as physicians and pharmacists, but also veterinarians. While opioids are a small part of the veterinarian’s medical arsenal for treating pain in animals, stocking and administering these drugs also makes it important for veterinarians to understand how they can help combat the abuse and misuse of pain medications.
