TN Pain Guideline symposium

Posted about 4 years ago by Irene Bean

The TN Pain Guideline symposium was interesting tonight. There are many changes and guidelines which will be mandatory.

  1. If you are the owner of a pain management facility, in TN, the Medical Director will have to be a Pain Specialist. (7/1/2016)

  2. There are 9600 APNs in TN. I need to meet these APNs. If we can bring this mass group together, what a change and difference we will make in TN.

  3. If you are an APN, you have 30 days to change your collaborating provider. A Notice of Formulary is also to be completed. It is also mandatory to have the CSMD profile changed to your new collaborator.

  4. Remember, you are required to have this course when you renew your certification.
