    Ordering and Prescribing: Responsibilities and Liabilities

    Wednesday, July 10, 2024 | 12:00pm - 1:00pm ET
    Virtual-Live Course

    Overview

    This 1-hour webinar will identify current high-risk areas of addiction medicine practice, describe underlying principles to help you manage your risk, and identify where to obtain further information on the issues addressed. Addiction medicine practitioners have patients, not clients, and therefore must recognize and satisfy a host of medical-legal requirements. By ordering or prescribing medical care (or neglecting to do so), you accept clinical responsibility and risk legal liability. Whether diagnostics or treatment, and regardless of whether insurance is billed for your services, it is critical to understand that if “you sign it, you own it”.  Failure to do so can put your finances, license or liberty at risk.

    The target audience for this introductory level activity includes: physicians and other prescribers of medications to treat addiction.

    Learning Objectives

    Upon completion, learners will be able to:

    1. Identify areas of elevated risk in their prescribing/ordering practices
    2. Assess the underlying principles and any need for further information on mitigating the risks related to prescribing/ordering in their practices
    3. Locate the resources they require to better manage their prescribing/ ordering related risk
