2022 Proper Prescribing
The urgency of patients’ needs, the demonstrated effectiveness of opioid analgesics for the management of acute pain, and the limited therapeutic alternatives for chronic pain have combined to produce an overreliance on opioid medications in the United States, with associated alarming increases in diversion, overdose, and addiction. In response to this disturbing trend, the Oklahoma legislature passed Senate Bill 1446 which places limits on opioid prescribing. Senate Bill 8486 was passed in 2019 to further clarify limitations outlined in SB 1446. The law places greater responsibility on physicians who prescribe opioid medications. This presentation will create an opportunity for physicians to be familiar with the latest requirements for prescribing under Oklahoma law.
The Proper Prescribing programs on 9/20/22 and 9/22/22 will focus on the impact of opioid medications in the care of obstetric and pediatric patients.
*Each of these programs meets the requirements set forth in Oklahoma SB1446/848 for pain management, opioid use or addiction education for MDs and PAs and the Proper Prescribing credit required by the Oklahoma State Board of Osteopathic Examiners.
The educational design addresses the needs and issues of healthcare providers including physicians, nurses, physician assistants, healthcare administrators, and office practice managers.
