Links for Opioid CME Requirements

The Arizona Senate and House voted unanimously to approve the Arizona Opioid Epidemic Act during a late night, January 25, 2018 special session. Under the new bill, PCMS members authorized to prescribe schedule II controlled substances and have a DEA registration number are required to complete a minimum of three hours of opioid-related substance use disorder-related or addiction-related CME each license renewal cycle.

For your convenience, the following links offer opportunities to fulfill legislative requirements.  Others may be available through your specialty society or other organizations.
