MICIS, the Maine Independent Clinical Information Service, is an innovative educational outreach program designed to provide independent clinical information to Maine physicians and other prescribers of medications.  By aligning prescribing practices with the best scientific evidence on the treatment of common clinical problems, patient outcomes can be improved.  While the primary goal of the program is to improve quality, the experience in other states has demonstrated that academic detailing also helps to control costs, which has important implications for improving access to care.  CME is available to participating providers. Call the MMA at 207-622-3374 for more information.

Modules in 2017: Improving Opioid Prescribing and Patient Safety

In 2017 MICIS focused exclusively on OPIOID education required by Maine Law, Chapter 488.  Presentations have included “blitz” didactics, multi-media components with expert faculty, case-based studies and small group discussions, and an academic detailing “un-advertisement” color monograph provided to participants.  Welcome to newly-designed CME, created by and for practicing clinicians, modeled to change practice behaviors with a compassionate, patient-centered perspective and focused on combating the defining public health crisis of our generation.
