This CME series aims to address this specific practice gap andincludes two training presentations.



This activity has been reviewed by the AAPA Review Panel and is compliant with AAPA CME Criteria. This activity is designated for 2 AAPA Category 1 CME credits. Approval is valid for one year from 6/28/2020. PAs should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation. 


Lectures Offered:

Clinical Implications of Opioid Pharmacogenomics - 1 CME

This presentation will first provide an overview of opioid pharmacology and clinical usage through the scope of available pharmacogenomics data. There will be much time focused on individual opioid metabolism and how genetic polymorphisms can alter the effectiveness and safety of these medications. At the conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  1. Discuss opioid pharmacology, analgesic potency, and major metabolism pathways
