To the Editor: I understand that Drs Nelson and Perrone1 were expressing an opinion in their Viewpoint about the opioid risk evaluation and mitigation strategy (REMS) when they characterized continuing medical education (CME) providers as “ostensibly independent.” However, I believe that opinions should be based on the best available information.
