Maine state law will soon require all prescribers to consult the State's Prescription Monitoring Program when prescribing opioids and benzodiazepines. Join us for an inside look at the PMP and to learn how this new requirement will impact your practice. We'll also explore Diversion Alert, a service to help providers access drug arrest data in the effort to identify and respond to patients at risk for overdose, in need of treatment, or engaged in illegal prescription drug distribution. The PMP's Heather Skolfield and Diversion Alert's Clare Desrosiers present with contributions from Peter Michaud of the Maine Medical Association.
