PDMP Advisory Commission Subcommittee

Purpose of the Subcommittee

This subcommittee was created in 2017 by House Bill 3440. Section 19 states, the subcommittee shall develop, through the use of PDMP information, criteria by which a practitioner may be required to receive education or training on the prescribing of opioids. The subcommittee may review PMDP information on a practitioner’s prescribing history (that does not identify a patient), to determine whether a practitioner meets the criteria for receiving education/ training. The subcommittee may direct OHA to provide to a practitioner who meets the above criteria educational information about prescribing opioids for pain.
