This 3-hour presentation is an updated version of the broad, clinical and legal review of opioid prescribing in Maine first presented by MICIS in 2017. The Maine Board of Licensure in Medicine has established a new CME rule which is currently effective. All of its licensees, whether MDs or Physician Assistants, must take 3 hours of CME on opioid prescribing every two years whether they prescribe opioids or not. No BOLIM licensee is exempt from this requirement.
