This 8-hour program meets the requirements of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2023, which requires that effective June 27, 2023 all prescribers of controlled substances must have a minimum of 8 hours of continuing education in the assessment and management of opioid or other substance use disorder in order to apply for or renew DEA registration. The program includes principles of pain management, opioid prescribing, opioid risk assessment, legislative issues, and management of opioid-use disorder with medically assisted therapy. Additionally, the program presents non-opioid controlled substance considerations, including psychostimulants, benzodiazepines, appetite suppressants, and sedative hypnotics. Indications, selection, and both assessment and management of use disorders is presented. Successful completion of this program complies with eligibility requirements for initial and renewal DEA registration, and meets most state-mandated requirements for opioid prescribing.
