Reason #10 : Presentation will meet new opioid prescriber requirements.
Shana Metzger’s presentation, Safe Opioid Prescribing and How to Manage theOpioid Dependent Adult, has been recognized the Board of Nursing and meets the new requirements of HB 1452/SB 1223 Controlled Dangerous Substances Registration – Authorized Providers – Continuing Education.
This bill requires providers who register to prescribe or dispense controlled dangerous substances (CDS) to attest that they have completed two hours of continuing education. This is a one-time requirement that applies to providers when they initially apply for CDS registration or their next renewal after October 1, 2018.
Continuing education must be related to CDS prescribing or dispensing and recognized by the provider’s health occupation licensing board.
