State Required Training

Beginning January 1, 2020, the State of Illinois requires every licensed health care professional in Illinois, including physicians, to complete one hour of continuing education per licensing cycle specific to sexual harassment prevention. In addition, any individual with a controlled substances prescribing license must complete three hours of training on opioid prescribing per licensing cycle.

To help you to meet these requirements, we’re providing links to the following resources. Most are available at no cost, and all have been vetted for unbiased, evidence-based content.
