Meet the New Government-Mandated Requirement for all DEA-Registered Practitioners!

Managing Acute and Chronic Pain and Substance Use Disorders in Pediatrics

Register now for the Managing Acute and Chronic Pain and Substance Use Disorders in Pediatrics online course. This new, on-demand course allows you to learn at your own pace on your own time.

Pain in pediatric patients is common, under-recognized, and undertreated. Unrelieved acute, chronic, and needle pain in childhood directly results in poorer clinical outcomes, including increased morbidity, degree of anxiety, needle-phobia, health care avoidance, and chronic pain, which may contribute to substance use disorders.

Focused on pediatrics, this online course addresses pain management and opioid state medical board CME requirements. It also meets the new DEA requirements, found in the Medication Access and Training Expansion (MATE) Act, to complete eight hours of training on the treatment and management of patients with opioid or other substance use disorders prior to applying for or renewing their license.

Developed for general pediatricians, pediatric subspecialists, other pediatric clinicians, and allied health professionals, this evidence-based course includes clinical content and question-and-answer sessions from the AAP’s 2021 Acute and Chronic Pain course.

By participating in this CME activity, you will be able to:

  • Diagnose, manage, and treat children from infancy to adolescence for acute and chronic pain.
  • Identify and implement strategies to address substance use disorders and safely prescribe analgesics in pediatric practice.
  • Identify the influence of bias and adverse childhood events on pain treatment.


  • Obtain pediatric-specific content that addresses pain management and fulfills state medical board opioid CME and new DEA requirements.
  • Maximize your flexibility and learning by accessing these on-demand, recorded lectures when most convenient for you.
  • Learn from expert faculty who provide practical information on the treatment and prevention of acute and chronic pain in children that you can use right away in your office.
