Level of Program:
Basic - Intermediate

Protecting your practice from prescription drug misuse and unintentional opioid addiction will require a proactive and well-documented approach. Practices must reassess their methods of prescribing opioids to keep their practice out of the compliance hot seat, such as redefining the quantity and frequency of their prescriptions.

More mandates coming down the pipeline would require doctors to undergo education on opioids and discuss addiction risks with patients, which may include physician-patient contracts. Even practices with only a peripheral connection to opioids find themselves in a changed practice and regulatory environment and need a crash course in how to properly handle, prescribe, control, and administer controlled substances. Not keeping up to date could mean legal consequences.

Join us for one hour as expert speaker Bradley J. Sayles navigates through new follow-up standards for patient-prescribed opioids and explains how to protect your practice from regulatory exposure.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Understand how their practice will be affected by the opioid crisis
  • Gain practical guidance for opioid management in light of increased scrutiny
  • Understand how best to protect their practices from legal and regulatory exposure 

Agenda:

  • Current practice and regulatory environment regarding opioids and potential areas of exposure
  • Best practices in procurement, storage, handling, and inventory of controlled substances
  • Managing prescriptions to avoid over-prescribing
  • What to do with “problem” patients (drug-seeking, etc.), opioid conversion, and opioid rotation
  • Responding to FDA and other government inquiries regarding controlled substance prescriptions

Who Should Listen?

Medical practice managers and practitioners that handle opioid or opioid prescriptions but could use additional information on law, regulation, and best practices.
