Janice L. Pringle, PhD  received a grant from the Commonwealth of PA to help develop an educational curriculum and materials to train prescribers and dispensers on the Pennsylvania Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) and opioid prescribing.

The educational curriculum will be delivered in various health care settings across Pennsylvania in order to teach best practices of PDMP use and how to refer substance use disorder patients to proper treatment. PDMP requires recordings of materials so that four different trainings can be hosted and delivered in an online training format.

Pringle is a PittPharmacy professor and director of the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Pharmacy Program Evaluation and Research Unit (PERU)
