Are you a Health Professional Seeking a Mentor?
The PCSS-O Peer Support System enlists clinical experts in the fields of addiction medicine/psychiatry and pain management to be mentors to health professionals seeking guidance in their clinical practice in prescribing opioid medications. This is not a program to offer medical advice about specific patients. Rather, this program is one in which experts offer general information to clinicians about evidence-based clinical practices in prescribing opioid medications. This Peer Support program is one component of a large program of education and mentoring services for prescribers of opioid medications in the United States.
