Prescription Drug Diversion Clinical Management and Protection

68524-EJ / OBO 881

The purpose of this course is to inform and educate the optometric practitioner on strategies to identify drug seeking behavior within clinical practice. The goal is to help prevent the diversion of prescription drugs into the illicit market, while at the same time ensure that controlled substances continue to be available for legitimate medical purposes. Currently, the misuse of prescription medications, including prescription pain relievers, central nervous system stimulants and depressants, is a serious crisis that affects public health as well as social and economic welfare. Even as our awareness of the problem grows, illicit prescription drug use continues to devastate communities and families, affecting people from all walks of life, all age groups, and all socio-economic backgrounds. This presentation will also provide participants vital information on the scope of this national epidemic, the national laws governing controlled substances, and the privacy issues on reporting suspected diversion. Finally, will discuss how optometry can work, in partnership, to reduce the risk of prescription drug abuse and addiction.
