Professional Education

The Gaston Controlled Substances Coalition held Responding to the Opioid Challenge: Best Practices for Responsible Opioid Prescribing in October 2016 and Managing Pain in the Era of the Opioid Crisis in January 2019. With the adoption of the North Carolina STOP Act – which set safer standards for prescribing opioids, and the proliferation of free and continuing education programs, our professional education now provides occasional presentations on topics of great importance. 


Our next program is now being planned for early 2022.
