Controlled Substances, Telemedicine, and DEA 2023: Navigating the Regulatory Gauntlet
Main street practitioners face typical business and workflow challenges as they try to incorporate telemedicine into daily medical practice. These challenges increase when controlled substances are part of a patient's treatment plan. This course will address the current legal-regulatory landscape - federal and state - involving controlled substance prescribing and telemedicine. Attendees will actively work through several case examples to evaluate the prescriber's conduct and to illustrate critical documentation requirements for demonstrating proper use of telemedicine if controlled substances are prescribed through telemedicine visits.
