Prescribing CME requirement

In response to a 2015-2016 state budget provision that calls on health care agencies to require controlled substances prescribers to complete education in opioid prescribing, NCMB successfully pursued rule changes to establish a new CME requirement. The requirement applies to physicians and physician assistants who prescribe controlled substances of any kind.
