Mandatory Controlled Substance Prescribing
Ongoing through Thursday, January 31, 2019, 4am Controlled Substance Prescribing - The required course for DEA-registered prescribers in Florida. It is no secret that Florida is currently in the grip of a severe opioid crisis. According to a 2017 report by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, opioids were identified as either the cause of death or were present in the decedent's system in 5,725 cases in 2016. That's 1,483 more than 2015. There have been indications that opioid overdoses claim at least 16 Florida residents per day. On March 19, 2018, Gov. Rick Scott signed into law bill HB 21, which includes a variety of measures to combat the crisis. Among other things, the bill states that each person registered with the United States Drug Enforcement Administration and authorized to prescribe controlled substances shall complete a board-approved two-hour continuing education (CE) course on prescribing controlled substances. The Florida Medical Association (FMA) is authorized by HB 21 to provide this two-hour mandatory requirement for MDs and DOs. Although only DEA-registered prescribers of controlled substances are actually required to complete this training every two years, all physicians are welcome to complete the video course. All CME credit earned will be reported to CE Broker. HB 21 requires prescribers to complete this course for the first time no later than January 31, 2019 and then for each subsequent renewal thereafter.
