Massachusetts Department of Public Health Is Requiring A Mandatory Prescriber Training Course on Pain Management

Mandatory Course Requirement for TPA and TPA+GC Optometry prescribers

November 9 - December 14, 2023

Massachusetts General Law. c. 94C, s. 18(e) requires that all medical personnel prescribing any medication must complete during each license renewal period at least one (1) hour of training on opioid abuse every year.

PLEASE NOTE: Completion of education in prescriber training does not authorize optometrists to prescribe schedule II medications. TPA+GC optometrists are prohibited from prescribing “an opioid substance or drug product” M.G.L. c. 112, s. 66C (a).
