ISMS members: Free
Non-ISMS members: $50.00
Health care professionals are on the front lines of Illinois’ opioid crisis, and while this is a thorny issue with heartbreaking implications, there are simple steps physicians can take to help curb opioid addiction.
The Illinois State Medical Society and ISMIE Mutual Insurance Company hosted a web-based conversation with Randy Malan, Clinical Director of the Illinois Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP), about how physicians can address the opioid crisis in Illinois through use of the PMP. While registration in the PMP increased by 25% from 2014 to 2016 and opioid prescriptions decreased by 12.9% from 2013 to 2016, there is still significant room for growth in physician utilization of this important tool. Mr. Malan will be discussing topics including what the PMP is, how to register, and how best to use the PMP.
At the conclusion of this learning activity, participants will be able to:
- Describe what the PMP is and how it is used
- Explain how to register in the PMP
- Recognize the importance of registration in, and usage of, the PMP
