CO*RE is a partnership between several medical and healthcare provider organizations, including AAPA.

Its mission is to make sure that extended-release/long-acting opioids are prescribed in a manner that enhances patient well-being and does not contribute to individual or public harm.

Over the past year, AAPA aggressively lobbied for PAs to be part of the solution to the nation’s opioid epidemic. As a result of our efforts, PAs will soon be eligible to become waivered to prescribe buprenorphine for the treatment of opioid addiction. On July 8, the U.S. House of Representatives overwhelmingly supported passage of the House-Senate Conference report to S. 524, the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA) of 2016 and the U.S. Senate followed suit on July 13. The legislation amends federal law (the Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 or DATA 2000) to permit PAs to become waivered to prescribe buprenorphine for the treatment of opioid addiction. 

The Collaborative for REMS Education, or CO*RE, offers FREE CME on how to properly prescribe extended-release/long-acting opioids and prevent opioid abuse.
