Program Description:

Several new requirements related to INSPECT, Indiana’s prescription drug monitoring program, take effect in 2019. In this webinar, an experienced health care attorney will review the latest requirements and answer frequently asked questions. She will review SEA 221, which requires anyone holding an Indiana controlled substance registration (CSR) to have registered with INSPECT by Jan. 1, 2019, and requires all CSR holders, at various times before 2021, to begin checking INSPECT when prescribing opioids or benzodiazepines. She’ll also discuss SEA 225, which requires all physicians applying for or renewing a CSR to have completed two hours of CME on the topic of opioid prescribing and abuse.

Learning Objectives: 

At the end of this webinarattendees will be able to:

  • Comprehend the newest requirements related to INSPECT.
  • Understand Indiana’s new CME requirements for opioid education.
  • Understand requirements in other opioid prescribing laws.
  • Mitigate the potential for non-compliance.
