12/31/18 Deadline for All MDs Who Do NOT Prescribe Opioids

Rule Chapter 21, Section 4 (1), states in relevant part: "By December 31, 2018 and thereafter, all clinicians must complete 3 hours of Category 1 credit Continuing Medical Education every two years on the prescribing of opioid medication regardless of whether or not they prescribe opioid medication."

CME is available through the MMA's MICIS program. Contact Susan Kring at the MMA skring@mainemed.com for additional information or to register for a CME program. The next program is scheduled for Wednesday, September 12th in Auburn.

The Board rule further states, "Category 1 credits will be accepted for CME regarding opioid prescribing from any of the following: the American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA); the American Medical Association Council on Medical Education (AMA); the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME); the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP); the Committee on Continuing Medical Education of the Maine Medical Association (MMA); the American Osteopathic Association (AOA); or the Maine Osteopathic Association (MOA)."
