The Opioid Alternative Pilot Program
ISMS members: Free
Non-ISMS members: $75.00
Last year, a new law made changes to the Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act that would allow patients who have or could receive a prescription for opioids to have access to medical cannabis. The law created the Opioid Alternative Pilot Program (OAPP), which is intended to help patients who might otherwise need opioids and to address the opioid crisis in Illinois.
Join ISMS Associate Corporate Counsel Sherri DeVito as she describes what’s allowed under the new law, and what the physician’s role is in the OAPP.
At the completion of this program, learners will be able to:
- Describe the Illinois law and rules on the Opioid Alternative Pilot Program and their effect on physicians.
- Articulate the written certification process for the Opioid Alternative Pilot Program.
- Discuss penalties for noncompliance.
