SEPTEMBER 25, 2019  1:00-3:00PM • INDIANAPOLIS, IN  • 2 HOURS OF CE

Opioid Education

In January of 2018, the IVMA Board of Directors approved assembling the Veterinary Opioid Education Task Force.  This task force is charged with assessing the laws that pertain to the legal prescribing and dispensing of opioid drugs by Indiana veterinarians.

This program qualifies as continuing education to renew your Controlled Substances Registration (CSR) later this year.

According to Indiana Law, continuing education on opioid prescribing and potential abuse is required to renew your Controlled Substance Registration (CSR) by October 15, 2019.  All practitioners that renew their CSR will be required to complete 2 hours of continuing education addressing the topic of opioid prescribing and opioid abuse.
