Opioid Consortium Education

The Northeast Ohio Hospital Consortium offers opioid use disorder online courses and seminars for providers, nurses, and healthcare support staff. These self-directed courses were developed with healthcare professionals from the Opioid Consortium membership and are available through the online educational portal below. Providers and nurses can earn continuing education for completing each module in a given course.

To take a course, you must first register as a provider, nurse or healthcare support staff with a work email from one of the five Opioid Consortium hospitals: the Cleveland Clinic, University Hospitals, St. Vincent Charity Medical Center, MetroHealth Medical Center, or the Cleveland VA Medical Center.

If you are already registered, use the link below to access the courses.
